Anxious? Down? Traumatized? Having problems in your relationships? Let's talk about it. I can offer perspective in areas such as parenting, career, and goal planning. We can discuss the habits to help get you there; to where you are aiming to go. If you don't know where that is, we can explore. The point is, we'll be working on the most important thing in your life, you! Let's identify your cycles and explore some possible variations!

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

Before you come to me, you should know that counseling does not work unless you do. I don't do the work, I just help guide you through it. Therapy is not the solution. You are! Things will always happen. It's all about how you choose to REACT vs respond to it! Practice makes... progress, right? Let's practice learning to be responsive! Here, the focus is you! Let's learn you so we can figure out what it is you should practice! And, let talk about ... boundaries! I give HOMEWORK!

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I have a very eclectic and nontraditional approach. I have a cognitive behavioral approach and my homework tends to be a little more on the play/existential side! :-)

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

Play therapy is one of my go tos! It's great for anxiety and trauma as well as depression. Finding ways to release tends to involve exploring a client's personal interests, which can be really fun. Finding effective releases can be the key to living a more balanced life. I use video resources and I am a huge fan of meditation!
