I work with adults and children facing various life challenges including: anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, self-esteem, relationship problems, divorce, and more. I specialize in working with elementary school-aged children, who face emotional and developmental challenges. In my work with children, I emphasize the strengths embedded in family ties and use a parent-child interaction modality to correct undesired behaviors and empower the parent-child dyad. When I work with adults, I match the intervention to the needs of my clients and use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, client-centered, & creative expression modalities.

I studied mindfulness and Buddhist psychology at Naropa University, in Boulder, CO, and researched the role of mindfulness in everyday life. I believe that people are driven to do better & be better at what ever it is that they do. Therapy is a process that helps revealing a broader perspective and can help you gain insight, resolution, and ultimately transform into a better version of yourself.

I also specialize in K-9 assisted therapy, an animal assisted modality that uses trained dogs in the treatment of PTSD, depression, anxiety, and more.
