Specialty & Approach

I have a deep respect for the wisdom and insight within each individual, and I believe every person has the innate capacity to heal and grow. I try to nurture this growth by providing an environment of warmth, acceptance, and compassion, as well as clinical skills and life experience. I greatly enjoy helping adults, children, and families create more fulfilling lives and move towards authentic well-being. I have experience helping people with depression, anxiety, trauma, addictions, grief and loss, parenting concerns, and troubled relationships.

In collaboration with clients, I draw on various therapy methods, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy, family systems, sandtray-worldplay, and mindfulness practice. I offer play therapy and relationship-based interventions to help children and families build connection, improve functioning, and heal from loss and traumatic experiences. I am also certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), a treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder and unresolved trauma.
