licensed professional counselor
I am a licensed professional counselor with a Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling. I’ve provided treatment in various settings, and I’m passionate about the treatment of trauma and related disorders in children, teenagers and adults.
I approach therapy as a collaborative effort in which you and I connect to find wellness and meaning in a way that aligns with your values. I find curiosity, compassion and acceptance to be the core foundation of a therapeutic relationship. My goal is to offer a space where you can find deeper understanding of your concern and confidence in your inner wisdom and resources. I incorporate various treatment approaches including Somatic and Attachment Focused EMDR and CBT, which are practices that have proven effective in the treatment of numerous disorders, including but not limited to PTSD, depression and anxiety.
In my work with children I often incorporate play therapy as an avenue to express what is difficult to express with their words. In my experience I have found that children have the ability to access personal strength and resources when they have freedom of expression balanced with security and support. I often incorporate the TraumaPlay model, which is are search-informed approach to the treatment of child trauma.
