I am a warm, passionate, and creative therapist who strives to make the counseling process a positive healing experience.  I specialize in play therapy and working with children (3+). As the Owner and Clinical Director for Creative Family Counseling,  I am currently working toward becoming a Certified Professional Counselor Supervisor (CPCS), Registered Play Therapy Supervisor (RPT-S) and Sandtray Specialist.  My therapy dog Cavalier King Charles “Buddy” accompanies me in many sessions and adds another layer of healing and comfort. My other specialties include anxiety and depression, self esteem, ADHD, social skills training, child parent relationship training (CPRT), parenting concerns, young adult issues and cross-cultural transitions. I hold certifications in Biblical Counseling from the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC) and premarital counseling through Prepare-Enrich.

I have taught parenting classes for 10 years and has 12 years of volunteer experience in Christian ministry working with youth and young adults. Raised in France and having studied in Chile, I am a Trilingual therapist, fluent in Spanish and French, culturally sensitive to diverse populations.

I utilize an eclectic approach that draws from Cognitive-Behavioral, Solution-Focused, Trauma Focused and Client-Centered Therapy. My desire is for you to develop the skills and confidence to handle life’s concerns and challenges. I will walk beside you and your child, encouraging and coaching you as you heal and grow. My goal is for families to walk in freedom, live more fulfilling lives, satisfying and healthy relationships and have an increased awareness of who they are and God’s purpose for their life.
