I focus on developing an empathetic and trusting relationship with my clients and their families. Within this therapeutic relationship, clients are able to address their goals and experience meaningful change and growth. To best address clients’ needs, I utilize a relational, holistic, and integrative approach to therapy. I strive to help individuals utilize their strengths, develop insight and understanding into their struggles, and provide tools to help find balance. I work collaboratively with parents and alongside any other professionals involved to provide a full scope of care.
I feel a particular passion and expertise for working with children and adolescents. This is a time when they are developing their identities, coping with the rapid physical, emotional, and psychological changes that take place within themselves as they adjust to the demands of peers, schools, families, and society.
