My Beliefs

You are just as important as everybody else

People-pleasing and perfectionism stand in the way of fulfilling dreams

Feeling is as important as thinking

Intuition is here to guide us

We can work cooperatively with others to achieve our goals

Negative beliefs squelch authentic self

Negative beliefs and emotion constellations form from traumatic experiences and take the place of authentic self

Not all trauma is "T" trauma

Being out of touch with who we are authentically is a source of depression, anxiety, and anger

Realignment with our truth is empowering and inspiring!

My Approach to Psychotherapy

I work with children, teens, & families. My approach to therapy is integrative. I integrate redecision therapy, gestalt therapy, play therapy, expressive arts, and sand tray therapy to help children, teens, and their families grieve, heal, and grow. 

My belief is that when we are connected with our authentic, true self, we see the beauty and wonder in ourselves and others. Then, we are willing to feel, think, and problem-solve cooperatively — despite our differences.
