To me, the therapeutic process is collaborative where I help guide you to reach your individual and/or family goals through exploration of experiences throughout your human development. I explore not only an individual’s presenting concerns, but subsystems and the environment around them. I understand that every client and family are different, therefore I utilize a blend of approaches and techniques stemmed from internal family systems, play therapy, art therapy, CBT, and structural family therapy.
I provide parent management training while working with children and adolescents.
I am a trauma focused therapist currently working toward my EMDR certification. This evidence-based approach treats a variety of issues including trauma, anxiety, depression, and others. I find it important for individuals, families and parents to understand how trauma or other obstacles have affected their lives or their child’s life. I believe in self-compassion while learning how to overcome difficulties that may impact personal well being.
