LGBTQ+ Affirming

Hello! I'm a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), somatic experiencing practitioner (SEP) and registered play therapist (RPT). I provide a variety of services for children, adolescents, and adults. My work focuses on empowering individuals and families to live with insight, balance, compassion, and joy. I help individuals and families work towards wholeness and healing with a variety of methods and tools. Counseling sessions are available in person, outdoors, and online.

There are numerous benefits of counseling and psychotherapy including

  • learning to cope with anxiety and depression
  • healing from traumatic and stressful events
  • increasing self-esteem 
  • improving relationships
  • breaking generational patterns of abuse
  • learning regulation and coping skills 
  • finding balance and much more

 Holistic  psychotherapy  services with an integrated mind-body approach in a safe
