I am committed to partnering with people on their journey towards authenticity, freedom, and hope. I work with children, teens, young adults, and families; I believe people of any age heal when they are known, understood, and accepted. It is a privilege to create a safe haven where the wounds of life can be addressed honestly and compassionately so that they can heal, allowing for a different way of living.
Through both a person-centered philosophy and practical approach, I am passionate about working with adults suffering from depression, anxiety, relationship challenges, feeling “stuck”, life transitions, history of trauma, spiritual questions, and career-related concerns.
My focus also includes children struggling with emotional and behavioral challenges, social skills issues, trauma, ADHD, relationship issues including bullying, anxiety, depression, and both developmental and life transitions.
Adolescence is a difficult life transition and I am excited to work with pre-teens and teens as they process identity questions, how to navigate relationships, depression, anxiety, communication issues, career planning, and many other related issues.
Both Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Play-Therapy informed, I also enjoy using expressive arts such as painting, drawing, books, and sand-tray in the process of therapy.
A bit about me: originally from Colorado, I miss the Rocky Mountains but I’m loving Florida’s beaches. I also enjoy reading a good book, hanging with friends, traveling, babying my plants, and drinking coffee.
I graduated with a B.A. in Biblical Studies from Moody Bible Institute. I earned her M.A. in Counseling from Reformed Theological Seminary.
