Individual, couple, and family therapy services tailored to your needs
who i am
I am a clinician that provides a varies of services including child, youth, and adult therapy. I am passionate about mental health, especially in the context of relationships.
I am passionate about quaility of services, childhood and youth mental health, and advoacting for oppressed and marginalized populatino groups.
what I do
I help children, couples, and families improve their mental, emotional, relational, and behavioral health through clinical treatment services. I also provide consultations, speaking engagements, workshops, and presentations on a range of clinical issues.
Since I work mainly from an attachment framework, this makes our relationship the key to change. I empathize with my clients (adults and children) but also challenge my clients so they can increase their well-being and achieve a higher level of self. I work intensely with clients so that I can give them the care and attention they need to reach their therapeutic goals.
I am an integrative therapist, meaning I utilizes multiple models and interventions to best fit my client’s needs. I am rooted in attachment, family systems, and interpersonal neurobiology theories to shape interventions which include cognitive restructuring, emotional regulation, and relational changes. These theories and interventions are adapted to the needs of the client, which can be expressed in play therapy, family therapy, or individual therapy.
who I serve
My heart belongs to Play and Sandtray therapy. I work with children and families that have been through traumatic experiences including abuse, neglect, divorce, grief. However, I work with common issues like anxiety, depression, adjustment issues. I strongly believe that family structure and safe relationships are key to living a healthy and happy life but also recovering from trauma.
I not only work with children and families but also couples and individual adult therapy. With adults, I help clients understand how their upbringing is impacting their present, their relationship patterns, and finding their true identity.
