My Approach to Helping
I trust in the strengths and abilities of each client and am passionate about helping them reach their goals. I respect each person's intelligence and I work to build a positive relationship with my clients.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor with training in play therapy, I work with clients experiencing trauma, self-injury, crisis, behavioral concerns, substance abuse, and grief. I also have specialized interest and training in working with individuals with autism and chronic illness. I specialize in developmentally appropriate approaches including play therapy, activity therapy and sand tray therapy. I am comfortable using expressive techniques with all ages, as well as providing traditional talk therapy.
I am an empathetic, playful, joyful person and enjoy collaborating with individuals to build a supportive, inclusive environment for healing and growth to occur at each person's pace.
