be your best you.

therapy is about more than just having someone who listens;

it is about creating intentional exploration and conscious change to

become your best you.

I provide individual, group, and family therapy services to adults, children, and adolescents.  I love connecting with others by helping to identify and work towards meaningful authentic change.  I have experience working with a range of clientele; from individuals adjusting to transitions, families trying to reconnect after trauma or tragedy, to people wanting to stop or start a behavior/habit/pattern.  I enjoy incorporating creativity into counseling sessions, as well as play and adventure (click here to learn more).


Clients I work with are faced with the some of following challenges:

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Suicidal thoughts/plans/attempts

  • Non-suicidal self-harm (cutting, etc.)

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

  • Substance Use Disorders

  • Complex life-long traumatic experiences

  • Adverse Childhood Experiences

  • Co-occurring disorders

  • Transitional challenges

  • Bipolar Disorder

  • Family Distress

  • Attention Deficit/Hyperactive Disorder

  • Sexual Assault/Sexual Abuse

  • Intimate Partner Violence/Domestic Violence

  • Behavioral Disorders (process addictions such as video games, gambling, etc.)


I have found myself particularly passionate about incorporating trauma-informed evidenced-based research and interventions into treatment with my clients (click here to learn more).  My style is client-centered and collaborative, and much of my work is rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) theory.  The models and techniques that I often utilize include:


  • Trauma-Focused CBT

  • Eye Movement Reprocessing and Desensitization (EMDR)

  • Motivational Interviewing

  • Solution Focused Brief Counseling
