I have over 6 years experience working with Individuals, children, and Families. My experience enables me to offer effective psychological care. I treat a number of mental health disorders, and specialize in working with Children and Families who have experienced trauma.
When working with adults, I listen to my client's concerns and customize a treatment plan, based on my client's individual needs. I incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapeutic techniques to support my clients with gaining insight about the relationships between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I support my clients while providing a safe, nonjudgmental space.
When working with children, I implement a Systemic Approach by incorporating caregivers to ensure an increase in treatment success and crucial family support. I utilize Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Managing Adaptive Practices Interventions, and Child Parent Psychotherapy. I enjoy working with teenagers and find it easy for them to connect with me.
I realize that choosing a therapist is a very important decision, which is influenced by many factors. I promise to provide a nonjudgmental, honest space that encourages collaboration and openness. My goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life.

Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and bring joy to your life.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger after traumatic events. I have completed extensive trainings in trauma therapy so I am better able to support you with overcoming these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.
Children interpret the world differently than adults, due to their stage of development. Often times, children do not have the language to make sense of the world around them and communicate feelings about changes in their environment. Through play therapy, children are able to process and understand their feelings about the world around them. Children have better success in therapy when the family participates and is willing to make changes to increase positive interactions between members. Therapy sessions are held with children and family members to enable an increase in support and positive communication.
