Philosophy & Services

Many people consider therapy, but are unsure whether it is right for them. With so many different types of therapists to choose from, it can also be hard to know how to find the best fit. You can read more about my areas of specialty and how I work on the following pages.

I wholeheartedly believe that change is possible, whether you are seeking more fulfillment in life, dealing with a major transition, or learning how to cope with a recent or past traumatic experience. I love my work and feel honored when clients allow me to witness the positive transformations that therapy can bring.

I provide individual therapy to children and adults. My work is collaborative, compassionate, and based on the knowledge that we all have the inherent ability to heal ourselves. I blend traditional talk therapy with other useful therapies such as play therapy for children, art therapy, and sand tray therapy. I also practice Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) to help heal trauma in a safe environment.

Feel free to call or email me to set up a free initial phone consultation to determine if I may be the right fit for you or a child you know.
