I match your internal motivation for change by working collaboratively alongside you to help encourage you to think deeper and build connections that will assist you in gaining a better understanding of your underlying issues.

My approach to therapy is person-centered strengths-based and solution-focused, by offering a kind, compassionate, yet straightforward approach. I strive to be transparent in communication and provide an ethical and safe space for you to practice being vulnerable so you can be the person you want to be.
Some areas of my professional clinical expertise, in addition to trauma and DBT, include co-dependency, couples counseling, family counseling, play therapy, increasing self-worth and esteem, exploring depression, anxiety, and PTSD and many others. I have been known to utilize art, music, movement, and psychoeducation into my sessions.
I have experience working with individuals ranging from ages 4 years up to 110 years. Currently, I work with clients (children, adolescents, adults & families) in a private practice setting, as well as an inpatient substance abuse setting. My goal is to meet you where you are, to work alongside you to meet your personal goals.
