I would describe myself as a supportive, encouraging therapist, and I enjoy helping children, parents, and families develop skills to help reduce anxiety, improve relationships, and navigate life transitions. I often empower clients to develop the skills necessary to self-regulate, set and achieve goals, and improve self-esteem.
I would describe myself as empathetic and engaging. I enjoy helping children, teens, and their families develop skills and providing them with tools to help them grow. I believe in empowering clients to help them work through their anxiety, improve self-esteem, and adapt to major life changes. My goal is to help my client build the self-confidence and learn skills to deal with change and conquer challenging situations.
I would describe myself as warm, compassionate, and open. I believe that the most integral part of the therapeutic process is the relationship between client and counselor. I strive to create a therapeutic space for my clients that is safe and welcoming and encourages them to bring their full selves into the room, flaws and all. I approach counseling from a non-directive approach and believe that meeting clients where they are in their journey is important. I work with clients to develop new skills and uncover new strengths and tools as they work through challenges such as anxiety, depression, or major life transitions.
I would describe myself as an encouraging and empathetic therapist. I believe that after building a relationship based on trust and acceptance, I can help my clients accept their true self and live more authentically. I strive to encourage my clients by helping them learn skills in self-regulation and communication- skills that build the foundation for happy, healthy, children and adults. I am passionate about helping my clients and their families see the potential in themselves, and live a more fulfilled and authentic life.
I would describe myself as accepting, creative, and resourceful. I believe that we are all the experts to our own stories, and it’s my job to help families investigate how they wish to shape the relationships and the outcomes of those stories. I approach play as a way to provide space for children to face their concerns and fears from the safety of their imagination and to learn how to deal with life’s everyday struggles in a more manageable way.

I would describe myself as bubbly, thoughtful, and empathetic. I enjoy helping children develop the skills to reduce their anxiety and bolster their confidence. I strive to create a space where my clients feel comfortable bringing themselves as they are to our time together. I believe that the relationship between client and counselor is of the utmost importance and that partnering with parents is essential to success. Parents are the expert of their child, and collaboration and support between the counselor and parents is essential to growth and change in the child.
