As a therapist, I have had the opportunities to work with children, adults, and families. I work with clients and meet them where they are, by using a strengths-based perspective, a client centered approach, and play therapy techniques. I believe therapy is a journey, and as the therapist, my job is to help you reach the individual or family goals that you wish to accomplish. I use a variety of therapeutic approaches with clients to maintain a safe, productive, and honest environment. I understand opening up can be scary and it does take courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life. Thank you for taking the first step.
