About me

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist who works from a strength-based, humanistic approach. I have been working as a therapist for the past seven years working primarily with complex trauma, anxiety, depression and learning differences. I combine mindfulness and grounding exercises with looking into your past and how those past experiences affect you currently. And through utilizing mindfulness you can sit with, understand and work through the feelings that are impacting you.

I strive to understand the whole person from their childhood till their present moment, focusing on experiences, emotional and physical feelings. I join clients on their journey and allow them to lead while guiding them when needed. I use play and art therapy with younger aged children as it allows for them to process and express their feelings in an emotionally safe way. I believe that young children often know what they need to process and with support are able to do so through various forms of play. With older adolescents, teens and adults I incorporate mindfulness as a way to learn healthy coping skills. I work on processing through art and other creative outlets as a means to support those who have difficulties verbally expressing their feelings and experiences. I know that some people come to therapy because they need to heal from an emotional experience. I allow clients to tell me what they need at their own pace and support them in their process.
