"You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection."
Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor
Registered Play Therapist
My approach to therapy involves creating an environment where clients feel safe, listened to, and understood. Developing a positive therapeutic relationship based on trust and compassion is my first priority, because I strongly believe it is essential for growth and healing to take place. Once we've established this, we will begin working on your specific goals and desired outcomes of therapy, whether that includes learning strategies to reduce and/or cope with anxiety, improving self-esteem, processing traumatic experiences, or other goals you may have.
My professional experience of over 7 years includes working with adults, adolescents, and children in a community mental health setting, where I specialized in treating trauma and self-harm. My more recent experience includes working as a trauma therapist helping children, adolescents, and young adults heal from traumatic experiences such as physical or sexual abuse. I have also received extensive training in play therapy, as I believe play is one of the best ways to help children express themselves and learn new ways of coping or regulation.
