Finding your identity and increasing your sense of self worth are all great goals that sometimes help to overcome anxiety and depression. Whatever stressors in your life, we can help you figure out ways to cope and move on. Our hope is to collaborate with you to decrease your stress and increase ways to battle the outside chaos in your life.
For my entire professional life, I have worked with children, adolescents, and families in a variety of contexts. There is nothing more rewarding than helping others, and I find that therapy is the most direct and authentic way to help. This is what led me to pursue this field in the first place!
I am enthusiastic and honored to be a part of the Family Connections Therapy team! This is a supportive and welcoming environment well suited to give you the help you need. The clinicians here are genuine, caring, kind, and ready to support you.
Children use play to communicate and make sense of their worlds. I utilize play therapy in my work with children to nurture a space to express themselves, discover their voice and strength, and process their experiences. My other specializations include helping children and adolescents who struggle with low self-esteem, hopelessness, emotion dysregulation, and communication skills. I am excited and honored to be part of the passionate and client-focused team of mental health professionals at Family Connections Therapy. Therapy is a collaborative process, and it would be an honor for me to walk with you and work with you through your and your family’s needs.

I started Family Connections Therapy to create a group that was different. We strive to provide our clients with an experience of warmth and welcome from the moment they step into our office. Everyone is valuable, deserving of love and connection, and we recognize their worth. From a very young age, I’ve always wanted to work with children and their families. I fell in love with the world of Child Psychology when I started working with children in my Developmental Psychology research department in college, and now I am living my dream job.
