I specialize in working with children as well as adults processing childhood trauma.
I believe we are all capable of growth and wellness. My goal is to offer you a safe place to come and work on your most personal and inner self. My theoretical approach is client-centered, focusing on the counseling relationship and self-exploration. The counseling relationship is the most important part of the process to me because it models what unconditional acceptance and authenticity feels like. I offer a holistic perspective to wellness, working with you to consider self-care routines and mindfulness practices.

“Play is children’s language and toys are their words” -Garry Landreth.
I am a mental counselor licensed in two states: TX and WA. I believe everyone has their own defined resiliency. Being resilient does not mean that people don’t experience stress, emotional upheaval, and suffering. My approach to counseling is focused on understanding a person holistically. I place a heavy emphasis on establishing a safe and collaborative relationship with all my clients; I provide each client with a safe, non-judgmental environment to express their issues and concerns. I hope to help people find their strengths and support them in their unique needs.

My specialties are trauma, Children and adolescents, neurodivergence, divorce/separation, parenting, and maternal mental health.
Each person has a unique story about what's going on and how they got there. What I incorporate into my sessions is authenticity, humor, and a pragmatic approach. I strive to build a solid rapport with each client, as I know that the therapist/client relationship is essential to healing. I use an eclectic approach and I pull from a lot of different modalities when working with clients. What I find is more important than any theory or modality is being there my client in whatever moment they are in.

My approach to therapy is Cognitive-Behavioral Psychology with eclectic practice elements and I work with all ages—children, adolescents, and adults.
Do you feel like you’re missing something in life? Is something blocking you from experiencing your best life? Do you feel like you’re not enough? Do you life’s stumbling blocks derail your days or path to success? When these questions show up in our life, we may find ourselves dealing with anxiety, depression or trying to self-soothe in unhealthy ways. When you feel positive about yourself and your most intimate relationships, you experience daily joy, better connections, and are able to offer the best of yourself. In our work together, we discover answers and find a path forward.

There is not a specific type of therapeutic style or approach that works for everyone: age, ethnicity, all of this may play a part into stressors and how we cope with them. Therefore, the services are built around the individuals or family needs, focusing on strengths and values. I believe there is nothing we can’t overcome and the first step is seeking the help.
