Helping Clients Thrive

My approach to therapy is to provide a safe environment where my young clients can express themselves through a play-based approach that is therapeutic, creative, and fun while we work on exploring various concerns, behaviors, trauma, or emotional distress they may be experiencing.  I also like to empower parents through coaching and provide them with the necessary tools they may need to assist their child in reaching their goals.

About Me

I enjoy spending time with my family that consists of my husband, six year-old daughter, and my little Yorkie, Abby.  We enjoy family outings, game night, camping, and taking vacations to have new adventures.  The beach is my absolute happy place! To recharge, I love to exercise, swim, take walks, and attend church at Good News Gathering.

What I Like Most About Being a Counselor

What I love the most about being a counselor, is working with families and children through a play-based approach to reach their fullest potential as they navigate through life’s obstacles, as well as celebrating their success!

Words To Live By
