While the thought of therapy can be daunting to some, it can also have the potential to be a safe place for growth or healing. Allow me to be a guide by providing psychotherapy tools, techniques and interventions to walk with you in this chapter of your life. My approach to therapy is to listen and create a judgement free space for you to challenge yourself. I utilize a Coginitve Behavioral approach to aid in ones emotional regulation. Life can present challenges, but facing those challenges has the potential to lead to hope and growth. You don't have to face such stressors alone. If you have to start somewhere, I hope it is here.
The last few years I have dedicated my time to working within the school district.

As you are facing a major life change or attempting to find solutions for what holds you back, why do it alone? I will stand as a witness over your transformation, assist you in shaping your story, identifying your strengths and new coping strategies to propel you forward. Together we can explore barriers, collaborate on real solutions, and dispel any fear or shame. I have an eclectic approach incorporating Solution Focused, Cognitive Behavior & Narrative Therapy. I am also skilled in integrating spiritual and Christian beliefs in therapy. I work with children, couples, families, and individuals.
My areas of specialty are substance use/addiction, depression, anxiety, trauma recovery, family conflict, parenting solutions, life transitions, grief & loss. I work with children, adolescents, transitional adult youth, couples, families and individuals.
We have all experienced unplanned events that challenge our resiliency and overwhelm our coping strategies. If found in a similar season, I will welcome you with unconditional acceptance to rediscover your strengths and explore unique possibilities for change and growth. Reach out and let's begin your journey.
