Mental Health Therapist
Over the past 8 years, I have worked with a diverse population of children, families, and young adults in inpatient, outpatient and school settings. Clients with learning disabilities, trauma, autism spectrum, and ADHD symptoms are some of the many clients I have served in the past. My therapy style focuses on being thorough, client-centered, and efficient through the use of eclectic, evidence based therapy methods. I assist with achieving my client's self created goals with the use of parenting tips and techniques for children, and a diverse set of coping mechanisms for teenage and adult clients.
I specialize in working with children, adolescents, young adults and their associated families. For elementary aged children I use play therapy as a method of allowing the child to physically express and process their current mental state. Young children have limited insight in their ability to discern their current affect; play therapy is a research based, evidence backed method that allows them to express their thoughts and feelings through their natural language: play. For adults I allow open discussion of current issues in a judgement free environment: open communication is key.
As a licensed clinical professional counselor as well as having an undergraduate degree in the biological sciences, I can assist in the understanding and treatment of your symptoms through a clinical and biological based manner.
