EXPERIENCE

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

​SPECIALTIES

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.
