Specialties: I have experience working in multiple different populations including play therapy with children ages 3+, adolescent therapy, adult substance use, adult mood and personality disorders, DBT individual, group, and family counseling, teaching nurturing parenting groups, and teaching residential and IOP substance abuse groups. I specialize in substance use work with adolescents and adults.
What to expect: I utilize the therapeutic relationship between client and clinician in order to build trust and explore the client’s areas of growth to assess what could be holding them back from experiencing their full potential. I use only evidence-based practices and approaches (including but not limited to: DBT, CBT, and MI) in order to facilitate a space and time that invites the client to learn more about themselves and their place in the world. Clients can expect mutual respect and empathy with each session. I am committed to judgement free non-discriminatory practice and welcome clients of all ages, sizes, races, ethnicities, sexualities, and faith belief systems. I look forward to working together!
