Hi! I'm a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) based in Upstate New York. I received my Masters from the University of SUNY Oswego and have been practicing for 10 years. I help children as young as 2 yrs old process through stressors through Play Therapy. I help families and individuals of all ages struggling with the stressors of relationships and struggles. I am prior military and support veterans during and after their service with their military stressors and their transitions they go through.

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

In our first session together, we'll start with brief introductions, then dive into the specific challenges you're facing. This will help me create a tailored plan for us to work through in follow-up sessions.

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

Having worked with clients for the past 10 years, I use evidenced based skills to give to my parents. I have been trained in Play Therapy and have a passion for children to feel safe and understood. I have experience and look forward to workoing with you to (a) identify the root cause of your challenges and (b) create a tailored plan that leads to measurable progress.
