I am an independently licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 7 yearsof clinical experience working with children, teens, adults, couples and families. I have certification in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Child Centered Play Therapy with a neurorelational emphasis (ask me about this, it’s really cool). I am trained in Gottman Level II for couple’s therapy.
I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (when I have to), Seeking Safety, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, some EMDR for trauma, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, art therapy, sand tray therapy, puppets, and I play a mean air guitar.
I have worked in the public and private school settings as an embedded therapist collaborating with multidisciplinary educational teams, special education, and occupational therapists. I have worked in the field in community mental health providing services to low-income, high-risk children and teens. I have also worked, in a professional capacity, with the 12-step communities, recovery communities, and faith-based recovery communities. I now integrate the rich and diverse experiences into Ragamuffin Counseling Services, Inc in order to provide quality mental health services to my community.
Therapy with me is simply about helping you become the person you want to be. If you’ve read this far, I think there are questions about yourself, others, and the world that you want answers to. Give me a call, let’s chat. Maybe there IS something we can tackle together that might feel too daunting to address alone.
