Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist who enjoys working with children, teens, and their families who have become off track and out of sync with one another, themselves, or just need a little extra help getting back to where they want to be.
My background is working with youth 5-24 years of age with emotional disturbances including (but not limited to): major depression, anxiety, attachment issues, ADHD, extensive trauma, adoption, foster, school issues, suicidality, and aggression. I have worked with youth and adults who are part of the LGBTQ community. My office is a safe place where all are accepted and treated with compassion. Some of the treatment modalities I like to integrate during sessions include play therapy, art therapy, theraplay, attachment based techniques, and solution focused. I also have experience working with parents who are finding themselves overwhelmed, burnt out, and struggling to make positive connections with their children.
I am not in this field to tell people what to do, pass judgment or give advice. My goal as your therapist is to listen to you, get to know you as a person, identify strengths, build self- awareness and create a safe environment where positive change happens, hope flourishes, and relationships thrive. I like to view therapy as a puzzle, we have some missing pieces, we have some broken pieces, and we have some whole pieces; let’s work together to put the puzzle back together. I look forward to meeting you!
