About My Clients

Going through hard times as a kid can shake your confidence and create havoc in your life. You might have trouble sleeping, struggle to keep the memories out, and want to shut out the world. Or maybe you can't sit still, get into trouble or feel the need to hurt yourself or others to feel better. Life after a trauma can feel overwhelming to both kids and their families. Luckily, there are really great tools to help you feel strong and overcome the past. Call today to get the healing started.

My Background and Approach

Every person is different, so how I approach treatment will be tailored around what works for you or your child. I like to break counseling down into 3 simple stages: One, figure out how to help you or your child calm themselves. Next, we'll use these skills while we work through the hard memories so that the memories can be tolerated and healed. Finally, we'll work on building good friendships, feeling good in your body/mind, and be excited about your future. With tools like EMDR, Narrative Therapy, Play Therapy, and Sandtray Therapy, I am able to work with kids and teens of all ages, both in-person and online. I focus on learning because I always want to bring my clients the most current, effective treatment options available. But what is most important is that my clients feel brave and safe – that they can feel comfortable being themselves. I value treating my clients of all ages with respect and dignity, even when others don't.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I'm pretty nerdy and love working with creative folx and kids who think of themselves as outsiders. I believe in a just world and want to help kids and teenagers discover their superpowers to overcome pain in their lives. I love finding ways for games, stories, and art to help kids and teenagers start to see themselves the way I see them – brave, strong, and ready to light up the world. I tend to connect well with most, especially kids and teenagers who have been labeled as “problem children” in the past. I like people who like to laugh, don’t take themselves too seriously, and look at the world in an offbeat, creative kind of way. I love things like Star Wars, Disney, Legos, board games, and hockey (as anyone can see from my tattoos!). I'm comfortable with quiet types, too, and acknowledge that sometimes we just need to be.
