My Approach to Helping

As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I draw heavily from a therapeutic style that is client-centered. I help people move forward by meeting clients where they are emotionally. My goal is to create a safe environment for clients to explore their issues and concerns while I assist my clients in finding their own way.

My educational background includes work in early childhood development, substance use, and cognitive psychology. I have experience working with ages 3-80. I work with children, adolescents, individuals, couples, families, and groups. My clients include those who are experiencing trauma, anxiety, depression, grief, and various life transitions.

I have additional training in play therapy, sand tray, and I am Gottman certified in couples therapy. I have further elected to complete specific coursework in order to support the LBGT community.
