As a therapist, I will foster a safe and non-judgemental space where you can express yourself authentically. My role is to assist you in identifying and transforming your suffering into awareness and autonomy through a collaborative relationship. I view all humans as fellow travelers and it is an honor to share in another’s journey towards their best self.
I see clients ages 7 to adult. My counseling approach is tailored to the client’s unique experiences and needs. As a Registered Play Therapist working with children, I utilize both a Child-Centered Non-Directive approach, as well as more directive techniques including social stories, bibliotherapy, mindfulness, and sandtray techniques. As a counselor with several years experience working in the school system, I understand the classroom environment and have an experience and knowledge of school building level resources.
With adults, I utilize Person-Centered, Cognitive Behavioral, Mindfulness, and Solution-Focused strategies. I have a straight-forward approach while participating in the therapeutic relationship with respect and compassion. I am comfortable working with a variety of presenting issues, including anxiety, trauma, grief, interpersonal difficulties, adjustment and transition challenges, self-esteem, grief, and a need for skills to deal with daily stressors.We only grow during difficult and challenging times.
If you’re reading this, you are halfway there. I look forward to sharing in your journey.
