MY APPROACH

My therapeutic approach includes a variety of different techniques which are selected based on the client’s presenting concern. I have received specific training in play therapy techniques and interventions. I am currently in the process of working towards becoming a registered play therapist. The therapeutic approaches I am most influenced by include Solution Focused, Narrative, Cognitive Behavioral, Adlerian, and General System Theory.

I examine all environments and relationships that form who an individual or family are and find solutions for the desired change in overall wellness and mental health. I believe clients can experience change and growth. I provide and environment that is comfortable, welcoming, and free of judgement. My goal for my clients is to feel valued and understood as we collaboratively work through therapeutic goals.

Works with:

  • Individuals 4 years of age and up

  • Families
