Therapy is like a lamp unto our feet, it provides the light we need on what can be a dark path.

About Me

I have experience working with individuals dealing with past traumas, relationship issues, crisis, grief and working through other hardships of life.  I specialize in working with children ages 4-10 who are struggling with emotional regulation, ADHD, anger issues, grief, divorce, depression, and anxiety. 

My therapeutic approach is rooted in DBT, IFS, Person-Centered, and play therapy. I leverage these modalities to assist children in building coping skills and tools to help build healthier relational and emotional responses, potentially hindering supportive connections.  In my practice, I integrate various play modalities such as art, games, crafts, and sand tray for emotional expressivity and development support.
