With over ten years supporting clients through major life events, hurts and changes I have learned the amazing resilience of human beings. I also believe that we are rooted in social connection and the narratives that we use to make sense of our stories. I utilize evidence based treatment to help with changing thoughts, behaviors and finding ways to endure the amazing ride of emotions. I look forward to meeting you and partnering with you for change.

The last 6 years I have focused on the area of child trauma, whether major or complex. This informs my work with adults and adolescents as I recognize the power of good attachment, self-confidence, autonomy and agency– those things childhood is supposed to give us but sometimes we are still learning and growing. I also have done work in education and coaching and use those elements as well as using lots of listening to support you. If you are under the age of 6 I will probably use play and if you are a child at heart I may include art or games to explore and encourage healing and growth. Right now I am online unless the kiddo needs in-home services.
