My Approach to Helping

My Philosophy: I follow a philosophy that everyone has a unique story to share and as a therapist I am there to build a strong foundation for you to share your story and encourage your personal growth and resiliency. My main approaches to treatment include Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Art Therapy, Family Systems, and Structural Therapy.

Hobbies & Interests: When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family going outside, finding new recipes to cook, researching and planning new places to travel to, as well as playing the piano and visiting close friends.

More Info About My Practice

I received my graduate education at Capella University in Marriage & Family Therapy Counseling with a specialization in family counseling. Throughout my career, I have had a great passion for working with families and children and have over seven years of experience working specifically with families, children, and teens. I have previous experience working at a partial hospitalization program as a counselor working with children and teenagers providing group therapy tailored towards various life challenges and mental health disorders. In addition to providing group therapy, I have also worked with families and individuals that are struggling with various challenges including conflicts with family dynamics, life stage transitions, and behavioral concerns.
