Background

I am a therapist who thinks therapy/counseling is beneficial for everyone. I enjoy getting to know you, and understanding in the most complete way, who you are. I want to hear about the person who you see yourself as and hear all those memories and impactful moments in your life. I want to help you figure out how to take your next steps so that you can live the happy and fulfilling life you want. I enjoy working with a wide range of presenting concerns within different ages and stages of people (perinatal mental health, children, teens, adults). So if you are considering counseling, I’d say give it a chance because again, I think counseling is beneficial for everyone.

My role as a therapist is to make space for you within the time we work together. Within this space, you get to fill it with whatever you think will be most helpful for you and I will help us navigate through those thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. I will help bring awareness to patterns and work with you to find your natural strengths and coping skills for these thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.

I have worked with children as young as 3 years old, up to adults with a wide range of presenting concerns. I just finished specialty education for perinatal mental health and I am currently very interested in this area. I am comfortable working with children on the full range of the Autism spectrum and working with children presenting with ‘bigger’ emotional/physical behavioral disturbances. The biggest thing I offer to anyone I work with, is that I will meet you where you are at and progress forward at a pace that is comfortable for you.   

So please reach out. You have gotten this far in both reading other therapists’ descriptions and specifically reading to the end of mine. I know therapy/counseling can be beneficial for you or someone you care about. If you still have questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to the amazing staff here at Sandbox Therapy Group.
