Children, Parents, Adults
I focus my work on three areas: tweens, teens and parents, young adults navigating through the world, and individuals working through stressful times, shedding past patterns, looking for growth opportunities, or searching for a more balanced life.
My goal in sessions is for clients to feel self-aware, empowered, and grounded in who they are to better connect with the person they want to become. This therapeutic approach can help address anxiety symptoms, lack of identity, pressured performance, depression, and lack of communication skills.
I am committed to creating an environment for clients to feel safe and comfortable to open up about difficult topics. This safe space is where we can honor those feelings and experiences, gain a sense of acceptance, and work together to create a journey forward toward a purpose-filled path.
Areas of focus: My areas of focus are trauma, anxiety, grief, behavioral issues, anger management, social skills, self-esteem, family dynamics, personal growth, high-stress environments, adoption, and medical patient/caregiver support.
Associate marriage and family therapist
I work with TWEEN and TEENS, specializing in trauma and fostering successful family and peer relationships through empathy, resilience, and intrinsic motivation. I have worked within school systems as a therapist and as a teacher providing a different perspective and approach.
Many children benefit from integrating feedback from those in their path of influence. While my work with PARENTS is child-focused, I provide training and support to parents, extended family members, teachers, physicians, and caregivers. This team approach aids in understanding current roadblocks from different perspectives and helps adapt the focus of therapy. The team approach also leads to clearer, more effective communication and agreement on expectations.
I work with YOUNG ADULTS as they transition through college, start a job, and choose a life path. We work to develop the skills needed to build confidence, improve communication, identify emotions, create coping strategies, foster self-discipline, enhance relationships, and more.
I worked in large fortune 500 corporations for 17 years leading Organizational Development Departments in change management, workplace anxiety, relationship struggles, personal growth and development, and balancing work/life realms.
In private practice, I continue working with CAREER-MINDED INDIVIDUALS and EXECUTIVES to help them navigate workplace issues, balance relationships, improve communication and productivity, and manage their stress and anxiety. We use our time together to acknowledge the current situation, uncover the different systems at play, address concerns or goals, and learn tools and techniques that allow for a brighter future.
I offer in-person, phone, and video sessions to support your lifestyle and schedule.
I have a background in early childhood education, working as a Kindergarten and First Grade Teacher. I completed my practicum for the 2020-2021 School Year with Wiseburn Unified School District as a Level 3 Trauma Counselor for children ranging from TK-5th Grade in multiple schools within the District.
I earned my bachelor’s degree in psychology, focusing on early childhood education, at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT, graduating Cum Laude. I earned my Master of Arts in Psychology at California Southern University with dual licensure in Professional Clinical Counseling and Marriage and Family Therapy, graduating Magna Cum Laude.
