I have been practicing in the mental health field since 2005 with experience in private practice, schools, residential treatment facilities and community agencies.


Stress Management, Phase of Life issues, Adjustment, Depression, Anxiety, Relationship Concerns, Grief/Loss, Parenting Issues, Work/Academic Concerns, and any other Emotional Distress that impacts personal well-being.

I believe that therapy needs to be individualized in order to meet each person’s need. I strive to create an environment that is inviting in order to provide a therapeutic relationship that allows trust and safety. I use a client-centered approach to therapy in order to allow each client to identify personal goals that address their needs. I work with children, adolescents, adults, and families using a variety of approaches including talk therapy, Play Therapy, sand tray therapy, and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing). I am a Level II Certified AutPlay Therapy Provider, a Play Therapy and Behavioral Therapy based approach to working with children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder, neurodevelopmental disorders, and other developmental disabilities.
