Therapy can be a beautiful and life-changing experience. It can challenge us, scare us, bring awareness and shine light on who we are in the world. It can help us find out who we strive to be. I have a great level of respect and compassion for each of my clients. I value your cultural and spiritual background. I know from personal experience how daunting it can feel to open up to a stranger and get to work on personal issues. With me you can expect each session to be a respectful and collaborative experience. My focus is to create a safe and supportive environment where you are empowered to heal, grow and transform.

Specialty:

Children, adolescents, families, couples and veterans. Integrative and holistic interventions including play therapy and animal-assisted therapy.

We all will have challenges and times of stress. It makes a huge difference to have a trusted advisor to guide and support you. I am ready to be that support and help you on your journey to greater health and stability. By listening carefully to my clients I can help identify fears, process wounds, and overcome obstacles. My goal is to help you navigate life’s challenges and give you coping skills that promote healing.

As a psychotherapist I’ve had the privilege of working with a diverse range of clients and settings. My experience ranges from adults and elderly in residential facilities, children and families in elementary schools, families dealing with divorce, and foster/adoption challenges in private practice.

I am trained in Solution-Focused Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, Attachment-based art and play therapy and Mindfulness-Based techniques. I use integrative and holistic interventions to support children, adolescents, families and couples. I support those with anger management, anxiety, career and spiritual growth, depression, grief and loss, parenting challenges, relationship challenges and divorce, and trauma-related issues. I have a special focus on animal-assisted therapy. This allows me to support those who may be experiencing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, including Veterans.

I received my master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from John F. Kennedy University. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. I am a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist Intern with the Board of Behavioral Sciences and am supervised by Geoff Nugent, Ph.D., LMFT, LPC, MFC 47549
