About Me

As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I specializing in the areas of trauma (sexual abuse, physical abuse, maltreatment, PTSD), anxiety, depression, self-esteem & identity, and couples and family work. I have experience working with children ages 3 and up, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. I find it is important to use empathy, respect, compassion, and authenticity to form a genuine, trusting relationship with all my clients.

Education & Experience

I have an integrative approach to therapy which incorporates my experience and training in attachment theory, Internal Family Systems (IFS), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Child-centered Play Therapy, Filial therapy, TF-CBT (Trauma Focused Behavioral Therapy), mindfulness, and Gottman Level’s 1 and 2. I am a trauma-informed therapist who enjoys working with clients to process and resolve issues related to adverse family of origin experiences. I also find it is essential to join individuals, couples, and families to meet them where they are at in a collaborative healing process.
