Being a therapist has seemed like a natural progression for me. I have always been able to easily relate to others and meet them where they are. I have taken my own struggles and used them to help make myself stronger and be able to gain insight into how to help others who may be struggling. I think anyone can benefit through the self-exploration that comes with therapy. I find it rewarding to see the progress people are capable of and to help them see the progress themselves. I have many years of experience working with children and families as well as adults and couples. I have worked with individuals and families with children as young as 3 with a variety of concerns. I am a trauma-informed therapist who is trained in Prolonged Exposure Therapy to treat PTSD symptoms. I am trained in different approaches. I have experiencing with LGBTQIA individuals. I also use TTRPG's in therapy setting. I provide therapy that is non-judgemental and I seek to meet each person individually and see what they are experiencing and then build from there to solve or change. I’m here to provide you with the support you need to feel better than when we first begin.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session we will focus on building rapport and discussing what you feel is most important for me to know. I think of the first session as painting a picture of you and then we focus on different parts of the picture as we move through sessions.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I have been trauma trained in prolonged exposure so that informs the way I help individuals. I have also begun Therapeutic Game Mastering- using Table Top Role Playing games in therapy.
