I desire to create a space of inclusivity and warmth where everyone feels valued. A space where you can explore and process some of life’s greatest struggles and share moments of fun and joy. I utilize a person centered approach in therapy and believe the connection between client and therapist is key. I am a gay cisgender white woman who is passionate about challenging systems of oppression and privilege and open to exploring how these systems impact individuals and families in therapy.
I have 10+ years experience in direct clinical care, in-home services, day treatment and clinical supervision. I work with client’s of all ages, and especially enjoy working with children and families (ages 5+), LGBTQIA+, trauma (in children), depression, anxiety, grief and loss, self-worth/self-esteem, identity concerns, adjustment/life transitions, and dysregulation. I am also passionate about play therapy because I believe play is the language of children. As a trained play therapist I believe children show us what they need through expressive therapies such as art, dance, play, and music.
I believe individuals have the tools to heal themselves, and that my job is to help you access those tools. I honor where you are, the diverse backgrounds you come from and work collaboratively to meet your goals.
I also have a dog Sadie, who accompanies me to work. She is a mini Aussie who loves treats, leash-less walks, giving puppy kisses, tummy rubs and naps.
In my free time, I enjoy rest, going to the dog park with Sadie, spending time with my people and exploring nature.
