I use an evidenced-based approach to my cases, and create a very creative and effective assessment process. From this I am better able to identify a client's unique presentation of a disorder or issue and also from setting a baseline, can re-assess for therapeutic gains from working together. I use CBT, DBT, DBT Integrated Play Therapy, and PCIT. I also have training from the Gottman Institute to help with relationship issues, as I work with individual clients to improve their marriages and partnerships.

Sometimes it is helpful for people to know "where that came from" in order to better understand themselves. Insight gained is a valuable tool for changeing. Lifelong events are interpereted by the individual. These interpretations affect our self esteem, our thinking, and affect our beheavior and feelings. Psychotherapy helps us gan "insight" and therefore we have the tools to make our own changes.

Licensed Independent Marriage and Family Therapist Supervisor

Available for Online Therapy

Therapy is not a one size fits all experience. Though I extensively trained to understand specific theories of practice, I utilize a "prescriptive" approach. This means I will adapt to your needs in treatment. I provide play therapy, drama therapy, and experiential creative arts therapies, but plenty of my clients also utilize "talk therapy" just as much. Therapy is co-created, it is relational, and it is in the therapeutic relationship where we seek personal growth to apply outside the therapy room. I work with children, adolescents, and adult individual clients, frequently female identified, LGBTIQ+ adults, adults with creative blocks, and adults burnt out about their work.

Because I work with clients regarding a variety of issues; my first goal in therapy is to discuss what is bringing you into treatment and what you hope to gain from your time with a therapist. Together, we will develop a plan for how to work on the issue you are seeking to address. My training includes therapies such as : DBT, CBT, EMDR, and compassion focused therapy to name a few. I believe in getting to the root of the issue and exploring what therapeutic intervention would be the best fit to meet your needs. It is possible to experience a positive change when going to therapy.

I offer psychotherapy for multiple issues. Mostly for people that suffered abuse and neglect in their life. People that went through absent parents growing up can have very hard time to connect and develop healthy relationship. Through psychotherapy clients can heal the past and learn to reconnect with others and feel love happy and secure. Client learn to descover themselves and increase their self esteem.
