My Approach

I like to refer to my office as the inside of my client's brain. You are there to give me the grand tour and I am there to help you organize, tidy and restructure if things aren't working smoothly. I take a very nonjudgemental, open minded approach and bring tools from many treatment styles depending on what you are looking for and what I think may work best to get results!

My Process

Getting started with therapy is a big step and you will reap benefits of making this time for yourself immediately. My process is cooperative with you and what you are hoping for from the process. Much of the time, I incorporate creative ways of learning about yourself, how to express and cope with feelings and manage the trauma and stressors of life. We go at a pace that is manageable for you and will bring change in the areas that you are looking for. 

Let's work together

We will both show up for work when you come to therapy. You do the hard work of being present and feeling your feelings. I do the work of researching best practices, guiding your journey and witnessing your growth. It's a team approach!

My Mission

Struggling with a positive self image, feeling alone, have a history of being bullied or finding their place in school, you and your teen are in the right place. Teenagers that are angry, hurting and have closed themselves off from the family need someone to confide in. My specialty is working with creative teenagers, joining with them and helping them build their understanding of themselves and their purpose. I dive deep with both teens who tend to be difficult to reach and teenagers who are asking for therapy. If you are of the Christian faith, incredible coping skills can be discussed and practiced if you would like.
