About My Clients
I help support children, adolescents, and families who struggle with bridging and building upon their lives and relationships. My ideal clients are those who struggle with connecting and expressing themselves emotionally and behaviorally. I believe that growth and change can happen when everyone comes together.
My Background and Approach
Are you or your child struggling with anxiety, depression, behavioral concerns or with communication? Feeling stuck in life’s many uncertainties or making big changes and in need of additional support? I can provide an emotional space and understanding! I am a relational therapist who takes a client centered approach to therapy. I see myself as an ally for you, someone who holds space to process your thoughts and feelings, all while working to meet your goals. I want to help you achieve your version of success, all the while seeking joy and building self-compassion. I utilize both play and art therapy techniques to help bridge connections within themselves. Using play and art, children learn to explore and express feelings, explore behaviors, bridge relationships and develop problem solving skills. I also use mindfulness techniques as well as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help challenge and build personal growth.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
Children display behaviors as a response to a variety of factors in their life. I work with both the child and the family to uncover the meaning and feelings behind the behavior and implement health coping strategies. Behaviors are a way for children to communicate their struggles and needs with us. I strive to provide a warm, inviting, freeing and confidential setting for all my clients. I maintain a supportive, collaborative, therapeutic environment where the child’s voice is heard. I work towards inner peace on their journey of healing and growth. As a parent, your love and concern for your child’s wellbeing is important. When your child or adolescent is struggling, it can impact you, as well as the entire family. I will support you in healing and finding hope and growth with you and your children in building resilience, communication, emotional regulation, and coping skills.
