Areas of Focus
I have worked with adolescents, families, couples and individuals, experiencing a variety of interpersonal challenges, overwhelming emotions, and difficulty coping with a variety of life stressors. I have addressed a variety of concerns that range from painful past experiences and trauma, chronic stress, depression and anxiety, to violence, abuse, and PTSD. In partnership with the Department of Human Services, I have provided a variety of services that range from welfare family visits, coaching individuals and families that suffer from substance abuse and addiction, and resource management and outpatient support. I have a background in assessment and treatment planning for individuals facing crises, and recurrent instability. I have provided therapeutic interventions with couples struggling with interpersonal relationship challenges, adolescents suffering from overwhelming emotions such as depression and suicidal ideation, and parents struggling with the challenges of raising children effectively. I work to provide support, relief, guidance, and tools to individuals that are seeking stability, coping strategies, and awareness as they navigate the intricacies of their unique life.
I believe in a whole-individual approach to therapy, and aim to incorporate a variety of techniques into my practice, ranging from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical-Behavior Therapy, Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, Person-Centered, and Mindfulness practices. I address the unique individual needs of each client with a similarly unique template for structuring my approach. In all, my goal is to support clients with increasing their level of self-awareness, improve their use of coping strategies, and support them in finding positive outcomes to stressors in their lives.

Gender Identity Exploration and Support
I love being in the outdoors with my dog walking new trails and exploring new places. Working with my hands is one of the most enjoyable activities for me. My new activity, working with my hands, I have started is sewing. It is really important for me to focus on my self-care so that I can be the best therapist possible for my clients.
