The therapeutic relationship is the most influential factor in achieving positive outcomes from therapy. Which is why I prioritize developing a strong partnership with my clients. As a partner in your journey, I value your needs and preferences for how therapy is delivered, and will adapt my approach to meet your unique needs. I specialize in helping children, adolescents, and young adults rise above traumatic experiences. Additionally, I am passionate about supporting people with overcoming self-harm and suicidality. I also have experience with, and am passionate about, helping individuals who are struggling with anxiety, depression, domestic violence, emotional dysregulation, and identity-related concerns. To address these concerns, I utilize a trauma-informed eclectic therapy approach that I adjust for each client. I often incorporate Dialectical Behavior Therapy informed skills, Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, aspects of play therapy, and creative arts interventions.
