“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.” – Lao Tzu

Seeking help from others can be very challenging, and in my experience it is those that seek help that express the utmost courage. As a therapist, most of my experience has been centered around helping children and their families, many of whom have viewed therapy as a last resort. As a therapist, my mission is to help my clients heal and recover from things like depression, anxiety, or trauma in a way that is central to who they are. I utilize both art and play therapy to help understand my clients in expressive ways. I also utilize psychodynamic therapy to gain a bigger perspective of my clients’ past, present and futures. I take a very holistic approach in the hopes that my clients will see this as a safe space for them to address their concerns.

My experience comes from working in a community mental health setting, where much of the focus is guiding clients to recovery. As a therapist at NWC, my focus will be on building lasting relationships with my clients so that I can continue to be a guide in learning how to cope with life’s many stressors. I believe in approaching therapy in a client-centered way, meaning that the focus is on who my clients are and being an active and empathetic listener.

As a therapist, I also believe in the importance of maintaining cultural competency. I take a non-judgmental approach to understand who my clients are and where they come from. I believe that we are products of our environment, and our cultures play a huge role in that. If you are someone or your child is someone that would like to take their first step into the world of therapy, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I look forward to being your guide!
