I have worked with children , adolescents, adults and Veterans facing a variety of issues such as domestic violence, sexual assault, depression, anxiety, and PTSD/trauma.
My interest lies in working with individuals who isolate, have lost interest in the things they once enjoyed, and/or who think this world would be better off without them. I'm also interested in working with individuals who are tired of worrying, or want to be more social. And last, but not least, I take interest in working with individuals who “just want to be normal,” who can’t sleep for fear of having another nightmare, or who feel damaged because of a violation of their personal safety. In summary, I am interested in working with individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, and PTSD/trauma.

Hey there! It sure has been a rough day, week, month, year - you name it. When was the last time you just breathed? Stopped and breathed? Feeling like you are overwhelmed? Having a hard time putting your thoughts and feelings into words? What's stopping you from living your best life? In my practice I focus on creating a space for clients to just BE... just be here, just be present, just be yourself.

Emotional and behavioral challenges in childhood and adolescence affects the child and rest of the family unit as well. Caregivers often find themselves heartbroken while they watch their child struggle through issues they wish they could take away, and if the child is acting out behaviorally, it is common for caregivers to even feel hurt and confused. I offer therapy services for children ages 3 and up, as well as adults and families for the diagnosis and treatment of emotional, relational, and behavioral concerns, as well as offer support services and psychoeducation to their caregivers and other family members.

I am highly experienced in working with children , adults, and couples in addressing a wide variety of mental health issues, problems related to substance, and dual diagnoses.
I have always felt honored to be given the opportunity to assist others in addressing what may be their most difficult time in life. My primary focus is meeting clients where they are in dealing with the reasons for seeking therapy. Building comfort and rapport is of the upmost importance and will be a theme of each session. As a clinician, I utilize a strengths based perspective to engage the barriers that keep us from feeling our best. Often times our greatest barrier may be our own irrational beliefs, problematic routines, unrealistic expectations and lack of positive coping strategies. Together we can create incredible change.

Most people have a natural drive to be independent and self-sustaining. The truth is life is not always easy and it can be difficult to be vulnerable with others. When people use their courage and bravery to reach out, I have nothing but admiration for them. In the dark times of life, we need a place where we can feel understood, genuinely cared about, and supported. I believe that every person is unique, and everyone has different needs. Some times life's difficulties take more time then we would like but I am there to go through it all with you.

I find it important to meet people where they are in life. Taking the steps towards healing and change is not easy. Exploring values and identifying barriers gives a path towards the things you may want in life.

I work to create a whole-brain and body approach to healing for each individual client through the use of EMDR. I promote seeking balance in life and advocate to help people feel emotionally and mentally empowered. I also take a trauma-informed approach in helping others better understand themselves, their behavior and how this has impacted their life. It is important to me to meet people where they are in seeking change and healing, because I believe this allows people to experience the power of freedom and choice in improving the overall quality of their life.

Child Therapists

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
