Is your child having a hard time? Are they angry or agitated? Are their emotional
reactions much bigger than the situation? Are they sad and shutting you out? Do they
operate in extremes? Do you feel like there is a wall between you and your child and
you cannot connect? If so, I am here to help.
I am passionate about helping kids overcome struggles, traumatic experiences, false
self beliefs, triggers, and stuck feeling states that impact their everyday functioning.
These challenges may be showing up as anxiety, attention problems, emotional
dysregulation, and behavior challenges.
I provide a client centered, holistic, integrative approach to counseling, which means I
consider each client’s mind, soul, body, physical health, culture, and life experiences.
Whatever they are struggling with, your loved one will be received with acceptance,
compassion, and unconditional positive regard. I am affirming and supportive of
LGBTQIA+ clients.
The therapeutic relationship your child and I build will provide them a safe space for
healing and change to take place through play, talk, movement, Lifespan Integration,
and other complementary approaches.
I have 2+ years experience using child centered play therapy, and am working towards
becoming a Registered Play Therapist. Additionally, I have worked with adolescents
and adults in an inpatient eating disorder facility, as well as adults struggling with mental
health disorders, substance abuse, and homelessness. I obtained a Masters degree in
Counseling Psychology from Northwest University, and hold a Mental Health Counselor
In addition to being a counselor, I have a family, which includes a husband, and two
teenagers. In my free time you can find me in the hot yoga studio, enjoying the
outdoors, drinking coffee, and spending time with family and friends.
