Since 2013, I have had the amazing opportunity to work with hundreds of young people in schools, in small groups, and in individual counseling.
My approach to therapy is strengthened by my focus on building a genuine, consistent, caring counseling relationship with every one of my clients. I am a strengths-based counselor, drawing from positive psychology theory to maximize individual strengths and work towards short-term and long-range goals.
My therapeutic approach is unique by design; I incorporate my favorite cognitive behavioral (CBT) and dialectical behavioral (DBT) techniques to create a well-rounded and evidence-based treatment plan that is customized to meet each client’s needs. As a therapist, my work is informed by my interest in mindfulness practices, creativity, and the outdoors.

I provide one-on-one counseling in a traditional office setting as well as movement sessions such as walk and talk therapy and hiking.
I love small group counseling. My small groups typically meet once per week for 8 weeks and consist of 5-6 individuals. If you are interested in being a part of a small group, let me know and I will place your name on a waiting list for the next open group.
Adolescence is often a difficult period and parents sometimes need support in navigating the ups and downs. I work with parents to build an awareness of their parenting patterns and assist them in improving their ability to communicate with, encourage, and support their children.
