I graduated from the University of North Texas with a Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and an emphasis in Play Therapy. I have experience working across the lifespan with concerns such as trauma, anxiety, depression, bullying, behavioral concerns, and self esteem. I am passionate about working with children ages 3-18, and their parents, through Child-Parent Relationship Therapy. I also enjoy working with young adults to help them find their place in the world, deal with the difficult transitions that young adulthood brings, and establish the boundaries necessary to have a successful and happy adult life. As an Adlerian therapist, I believe that ”We are not determined by our experiences, but are self-determined by the meaning we give to them; and when we take particular experiences as the basis for our future life, we are almost certain to be misguided to some degree. Meanings are not determined by situations. We determine ourselves by the meanings we ascribe to situations"-Alfred Adler. I utilize Adler’s empowering ideas to help clients rewire their mistaken beliefs and see themselves, others and the world in a more helpful and accurate way. Occasionally, I will switch up the traditional talk therapy and bring in art activities, utilize sand tray therapy and other alternative modalities in order to meet my client's needs throughout the therapeutic process.
