My Approach to Helping

Though I have varied clinical experience, I specialize in working with anxiety, depression, self-harm, and trauma survivors. I am a registered play therapist which means I use play-based techniques and expressive arts to engage children and adolescents. I also enjoy working with adult clients. I have received extensive training in trauma focused-cognitive behavioral therapy to treat acute or developmental trauma and traumatic grief. When I am operating out of this model, I use education, coping skills, and a narrative component to help my clients overcome their traumatic experiences. I also have a special place in my heart for those who struggle with eating disorders and self-harm.

I view therapy as a sacred space. Many of my clients begin therapy describing feelings of shame or being "stuck" in a feeling or behavior. Therapy is a place where they can find the courage to engage in a process of healing and self-discovery. There are many paths to healing and I am committed to helping you discover your path.

Being respectful of my clients is of utmost importance to me. Even when working with children, it is my goal to develop an egalitarian relationship to help them feel safe and set the stage for self-discovery. However, I often balance this by providing directives and structure when appropriate. Because many people who seek counseling have already tried many methods to solve their problems, I find it can be effective for some clients to have a more directive approach.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

My job is about hope. Many of my clients have commented at the end of treatment that they were surprised to feel so much better. They had not hoped that they would ever find relief from the concerns that brought them to therapy. It is a privilege to share in the journey of healing in which my clients are engaged. To me, it is not only beautiful to see this change take place, it is sacred.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

First of all, let me say that I am sorry that happened. Therapy is such a deeply personal experience that when something goes wrong, it can cut very deeply. In my practice, I always ask my clients about other experiences in therapy to find out what they did or did not like about their previous treatment. It is a value of mine to listen to my client and ensure that I am sensitive to times when they may have been hurt or offended by a therapist in the past.
