Relationships can be messy. And while it is true that connection is critical for our well-being, it can be hard to know what to do when those relationships hurt more than help. I work through a relational lens to assist individuals and families in finding healthier boundaries and better communication skills, managing mental health symptoms, and building self-esteem. I believe healing can happen and that you can do hard things. Together, we can find a way.
I have experience in working with individuals and families processing the experiences of childhood sexual trauma and issues concerning sexuality. I have also collaborated with parents through the challenges of raising children, supported teens exploring gender, taught couples new communication skills, and met with women moving through menopause. In my office, you will define ‘you’ in a nonjudgmental space to consider and explore the solutions you seek.
At CARE counseling, I provide therapy with children (age 8+) and adolescents, individuals, families in all the ways you claim them, couples, and parents. I am a graduate of St. Mary’s University with a Marriage and Family Therapy degree. I utilize various interventions such as sand tray therapy, EMDR, DBT, Collaborative Therapy, Experiential Therapy, and Narrative Therapy. In my off hours, you might find me searching for the best British crime and detective series with my partner, spending time with my blended family, or hanging out with my two rescue dogs, Frankie and Izzy.
