About me

It can feel vunerable to talk with a stranger and it's an important first step forward. I specialize in working with families and couples as well as individuals, adolescents, and children. I enjoy practicing therapy that encourages strengthening relationships, communication, and esteem. I have experience working with couple/family/parent-child issues, inattention, depression, and anxiety. My specialty areas include animal assisted psychotherapy and eco-therapy. I'm currently under supervision to be a Registered Play Therapist and am in EMDR training. Feel free to book your appointment with me on our website if we are a good fit!

I believe therapy can also be a beneficial preventative measure rather than just a treatment for an existing issue. I encourage insight building, increasing distress tolerance, and emotion processing/communication for client empowerment through a person-centered approach.
