“I help my clients find trust in themselves through their therapeutic processes, guiding them using the mind-body experience.”
What was your path to becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor?
From a young age, I’ve always had a desire to help other people, learn from others, explore relationships, and grow from others. This led me to my degree in social science with a focus on community mental health. I gained knowledge and watched the transformation of people occur. I went on to receive my master’s degree in professional counseling. Through my experiences, I was drawn to the family experience, specifically motherhood and how women are transformed. I became a registered play therapist to help guide parents on their own parenting journeys. My areas of focus and expertise include play therapy, PTSD, anxiety, mood disorders, and more. I love being a part of people’s journeys.
What should someone know about working with you?
I help clients and families build foundations. I help my clients find trust in themselves through their therapeutic processes, guiding them using the mind-body experience. I also bring in my background in play therapy. Gary Landreth said, “Play is the language of children.” I believe different creative forms of play can be the language of all.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I’m excited about the accessibility of therapy through telehealth. It has changed the landscape of the mental health field. It prevents busy schedules from getting in the way of receiving treatment. It breaks down the barriers of having to sit in a therapy office and allows clients to participate in care from the comfort of their own homes. Children, especially teens, have become more open to the therapeutic process as well, which has broken the stigma around receiving help.
