Childhood and adolescence are pivotal years to explore and learn about ourselves. It is exciting yet also has moments where youth can feel powerless or lacking control. As a counselor myself, working at a local high school and later at Children’s Hospital, I have been able to use my own experience to connect with children and teens who have experienced trauma and need support. I am passionate about offering my clients reliable tools and perspectives to deal with the rigors of youth. I have worked to develop my skills in solidly backed methodologies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Experiential Play Therapy. These therapy tools, among others, allows me to find the most ideal approach for each unique client. As we work together to address issues such as anxiety, depression, or past traumas, my hope is that each person will feel empowered and be equipped with new emotional resources and resilience to reach their highest potential.
