People reach out for support for many different reasons. I am here to help and support you with your individual needs. Navigating though life can be complicated and often leave us with undesirable feelings. However, we can work together to achieve your goals. I want the therapeutic process to feel helpful and you to feel supported by our relationship. This supportive relationship will be nonjudgmental, compassionate and I will always be open to listening to your thoughts and feelings. I can provide you a nurturing space so you can speak freely and share your concerns, with confidentiality. I look forward to supporting you.
My focus will be to support you through a process that will facilitate healing, and help you become aware of your inner strengths. I can achieve this by using evidence based therapy practices and teaching you skills that will be tailored to fit your goals. I have advanced practice and experience in teaching adults and children how to better manage their emotions and facilitate problem solving. While adults often prefer talk therapy, children often need other outlets to express themselves. I use techniques with children that are play therapy based such as art, sand tray, music and yoga. Using movement and objects to express emotions can be powerful and healing for children. I believe everyone can excel when given the tools and supports they need.
