I have loved and worked with children all my life, first as a babysitter, then as a nanny and earning a degree in Human Development with an emphasis in Early Childhood from Warner Pacific College. In order to realize my dream of becoming a play therapist, I pursued my Master’s degree in Counseling with an emphasis in expressive therapies. Now, I am thrilled to bring my natural interpersonal skills and training to a career in supporting and assisting youth and families in developing coping skills to manage emotions and empowering parents with the tools to support their children through emotional regulation. My approach aids the family in finding the synergy they are looking for.
It is my goal to create a safe space and environment where you and your child can share, process and work towards healing, acceptance and growth. I am a Licensed Practical Counselor, ADHD specialist, Autism support specialist advocating for relationship based and parent-mediated approach as well as an LGBTQ+ affirmative therapist and intentional about social justice and anti-racist work.
I am available to see clients and their parents or caregivers ages 6mo to 12 years old, virtually.
