Sometimes events like transitions, trauma, loss, and adjustment to divorce or limited social support trigger difficulties. As a result, conflicts, depression, anxiety, emotional outbursts, academic decline, isolation, addiction or other risky behaviors can emerge. I support clients and families as they overcome these challenges. I believe in the capacity to grow, change, and move towards self-identified goals.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Mental Health Service Provider designation and have been practicing since 2013. I provide therapy to preteens, teens, and young adults.
I have worked within different therapeutic environments over the last six years including the school system, individual homes, outpatient clinics and private practice. I believe this has molded me into a well-rounded therapist with experience in serving multiple populations.
Approach To Counseling
My approach to psychotherapy is integrative and focuses on the therapy relationship, incorporating meditation/mindfulness practices, self-acceptance, development of coping skills, and repairing relationships. I draw from many approaches, including evidence-based practices such as person-centered therapy, CBT and Child-parent psychotherapy. Over the years, I have found a therapeutic style that feels genuine and organic for me. Clients typically appreciate my positivity, humor and down to earth style.
