My Approach to Helping
At Azalea, we believe you have the opportunity to discover joy, love, and community in your life. From whatever circumstance, history, or future plan, wherever your life takes you, we solidly believe you can find fulfillment and purpose. As we work together, I believe in providing a safe, comfortable, open and understanding environment to create positive changes in your life. I've built my group practice and co-therapists around these values and my team and we look forward to working with you to achieve your goals!

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
My specialty is in the treatment of PTSD, relationship challenges, bipolar, anger, and developmental disabilities. I have training in trauma-focused cognitive behavior therapy. I use evidence-based practices, including dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). I love to work with Children and young adults, especially in the areas of attachment and healing from trauma. I also incorporate relaxation, mindfulness, and unconditional acceptance.
