About My Clients

I have extensive experience working with children, adolescents and young to middle-aged adults. My primary history of treatment includes anxiety, depression, trauma and parenting. I have experience with individual, couples and family therapy. I use a combination of therapies, theories and techniques to meet my client's unique needs and goals.

My Background and Approach

I utilize a person-centered, strengths-based approach with a trauma-informed lens. My favorite modalities are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. I also have certification in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, as well as accreditation in The Positive Parenting Program (Triple P) and Circle of Security. I use a combination of therapies, theories and techniques to meet my client's unique needs and goals. Goal setting is a collaborative effort. I enjoy teaming up with my client, more in a co-pilot role rather than a director. You are the expert in your life, your emotions and your experiences.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Ever since I was a young child, experiencing the divorce of my parents, I have made it a goal to become a therapist. I remember meeting a therapist for the first time as a young, scared and confused kid. My experience with this therapist was life changing, to the point where I was inspired to follow her footsteps. I am passionate about helping people celebrate their biggest wins and get through their darkest days. My favorite part about being a therapist is getting the amazing opportunity to walk alongside people while they heal and create a life they want to live - it truly is an honor and a beautiful process.
