My philosophy is built upon the premises of person-centered therapy; I will engage with you in a manner that emphasizes empathy, congruence, and unconditional personal regard, enabling you to choose a path forward that fits with your own personal life goals. My educational background combines a strong foundation in marriage, family and human development with coursework in mental health counseling and specific training in child welfare. I work compassionately with individuals who are striving to overcome insecure attachment patterns and significant personality disorders. I am currently pursuing training in EMDR, an effective treatment for conditions such as anxiety and post traumatic stress disorder. I also am pursuing certification in play therapy and specialized training in expressive approaches including sand tray therapy and expressive arts. I participate in many training in excess of those mandated by requirements in an effort to better myself and increase the tools I have available to assist clients in their journey.
