The decision to enter therapy is not always easy. Choosing a therapist can also be difficult. Having a genuine connection to a therapist you trust and like is key for therapy to work. I can honestly say that I have found my calling. I am truly passionate about my work and feel so fortunate to have found a career that affords me so much personal satisfaction and allows me the prilvilege to participate in and witness the personal growth of my clients. My office is a relaxed confidential atmosphere where clients can feel comfortable and safe.I often refer to the therapy process as a playground because a playground is a safe place to explore and learn; so is therapy. Together we will explore and better prepare you to handle the emotions and difficulties that brought you to therapy.
 

I specialize in working with childhood and adolescent difficulties. Additionally, I work with adults and couples utilizing an eclectic therapeutic approach to achieve maximum results.

 

When working with children, I utilize play therapy techniques, which allow children to alleviate their symptoms. When working with adolescents, I help with problem solving and expression. I work closely with the child/adolescent's parents to provide support and guidance.

 

I let adult clients take the lead when I work with them, helping to develop insight into their lives so they can understand themselves fully. With these tools, they are more prepared to handle stress & difficulties, subsequently able to create positive change.

 

Beyond my graduate school training, I am a Certified Hypnotherapist. I have incorporated hypnotherapy into my practice to enhance the therapeutic experience helping people with all kinds of life transitions, relationship issues, grief and loss, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and trauma.

 

Hypnotherapy teaches the client to use relaxation techniques and visualization to cope with fears, anxieties, depression and other behavioral issues that may prevent the person from being satisfied with who they are and how they look. In addition, hypnotherapy can be an effective way to lose weight and quit smoking.
