Adults

I work with adults who are struggling with feeling sad, stressed, anxious, overwhelmed, disconnected, shut down, or emotionally dysregulated. Often these struggles are tied to trauma.

Trauma has a profound impact on our sense of self, our relationships, and our outlook on the world. Our capacity to connect with our body and our emotions may be altered. The impact of trauma can disrupt our ability to regulate feelings, make us question who we are, and lower our self-esteem. In relationships, trauma can influence our capacity for connection. However, the painful experiences we have faced do not define us.


I provide a safe space where together we can explore what has happened. With support you can put words to your experiences, feelings, and needs. We will work together to strengthen your resources for coping and self-regulation. You can reconnect with lost aspects of yourself. Strengthening your body mind connection can help you be more present, open, and aware. When you know in your body that the painful experiences from the past are over, you can live more in the present and shift away from fear responses. Change becomes real when you feel embodied and empowered.


I work with people who have experienced:

  • Developmental Trauma

  • Childhood Abuse or Neglect

  • Relational Trauma

  • Intergenerational Trauma

  • Shock Trauma


Together we can work on:

  • Boundaries

  • Emotional Regulation

  • Strengthening Self-Esteem

  • Resourcing

  • Work/Life Balance

  • Healing Shame

  • Grief and Loss

  • Attachment Issues

  • People Pleasing

  • Avoidance

  • Trust and Safety

  • Self-Acceptance

  • Finding Joy

Children

I focus on working with elementary age children ages 6 to 11 years old. My clinical experience includes working with children who are neurodivergent (ASD, ADHD), have attachment difficulties, and children who have experienced trauma. I utilize a combination of techniques from play therapy and art therapy. I believe that supporting the self-expression of a child will help illuminate what needs to be heard and addressed.


A child often starts with expressing themselves nonverbally, through drawing, sand tray, or use of puppets. I follow your child’s lead and join with them in their chosen medium of self-expression. We work together, hand in hand, side by side, in exploring. We find words for what is happening, within the safe and supportive space of the therapy room. Through the use of visual aids and play therapy materials, together we work to name emotions that feel very big or scary. We work on developing coping tools and resources to regulate emotions. I can help your child better understand themselves, their experiences, relationships, and the world.


An important part of work with young children is parent coaching. I work with parents to support their child in meaningful ways by providing tangible tools to support social and emotional health and helping to strengthen the parent-child relationship. Parent sessions can be conducted in person or online via telehealth.


Common issues I treat:

  • Social Anxiety

  • Separation Anxiety

  • Sadness

  • Irritability

  • Anger

  • Fears

  • Transitions and Adjusting to Change

  • Peer and Sibling Relationship Struggles

  • Trauma

  • Grief and Loss

Teens

I provide therapy to high school teenagers aged 15 years and older.


My clinical experience includes supporting teens who are dealing with sadness, low motivation, trauma, difficulty managing stress, body image struggles, performance anxiety, social anxiety, conflict within relationships, and wanting to build self-confidence. Together we will work to embrace the “feels,” move away from unhelpful coping strategies, and towards emotional regulation techniques that will help you feel better.


I provide a safe and welcoming space for teens to get to know themselves on a deeper level, including exploration of their gender identity, gender expression, and sexuality. As a therapist I enjoy supporting teens who are in the process of figuring out what life after high school might look like. I have experience working with teens who are on a 504 plan or IEP.


I help teens:

  • Navigate Social Dynamics

  • Build Emotional Self-Expression

  • Develop Coping Tools

  • Heal from Trauma

  • Manage Stress

  • Process Divorce

  • Adjust to Blended Families

  • Improve Self-Esteem
