I provide therapy for children, adolescents, teenagers, and adults. I work sensitively to help clients gain insight, inner strength, and incorporate a sense of balance into their lives.
I truly enjoy supporting clients as they process their experiences and with time, develop coping strategies and increase a sense of self and purpose. I often utilize play therapy with youth and draw from a variety of evidence-based treatments to help clients reach their goals and ease suffering.
Therapy is an opportunity to increase life satisfaction and deepen meaning in our lives as we explore identity, values, and worldviews. Resilience can be identified and fostered from our past to support our sense of connection with our present lives.
My style is compassionate and interactive. We cannot avoid pain in our lives but with the right support, we can feel empowered to live more fully and openly. I appeal to those looking for a therapist who sensitively holds past experiences while honoring the here and now.
