My Approach

Welcome to the first step on your path to healing—whether it's for yourself, your child, or your family. As a licensed psychotherapist with specialized training in trauma, I am dedicated to creating a safe and nurturing environment to explore the complexities of your life and relationships. My approach integrates the empowering principles of cognitive behavior therapy, family systems therapy, and attachment theory, all from a strengths-based perspective.

I am particularly passionate about assisting children, parents and families navigate the aftermath of trauma. Understanding each client's unique story is at the heart of my practice, and I work collaboratively to foster resilience and promote healing. Together, we will uncover your strengths and learn new strategies to create healing and empowerment.

Facing challenges can be daunting, and it's normal to feel hesitant about seeking help. However, I am here to support you every step of the way. If you're ready to start making meaningful changes, I invite you to reach out to me for a consultation. Let's work together to rediscover your strengths and move forward.
