About My Clients

Our experiences in life shape us, but they do not have to define who we are. I work with people who are going through life transitions, survivors of trauma, and/or who are experiencing depression and anxiety. Or, maybe you are at a point in your life where you are ready to live your life more authentically, you may be searching for support as you begin this new journey. Depth therapy may help you to understand more about yourself and bring balance between your inner and outer worlds.

My Background and Approach

I utilize depth therapy through talk therapy, exploring dreams and utilizing methods such as sandplay therapy. The images, themes, and situations that appear to us over time in our dreams may provide threads of information to help us understand more about who we are. Similar to exploring dreams, sandplay is used with someone who is searching for understanding the unconscious by using miniature figures and creating small worlds in a sand tray. Although this may sound simple, this method is a powerful way to find healing from within. Something that must be experienced through a sandplay process. I also use play therapy with children, such as games and creating art. I have been licensed as a mental health counselor since 2009. I have also received specialized training in Sandplay Therapy. Areas of expertise: depression, anxiety, ADHD, life transitions, autism, substance usage. I am an ally of the LGBTQ+ community and a WPATH member.
