I went away for college, receiving my undergraduate degree at the University of Utah in Human Development and Family Studies. I was accepted into the University of Michigan’s Social Work Program, and received my Master’s degree in Social Work in December of 1996. I began working on my internship hours right out of graduate school in Michigan. In 1998, I moved back to Las Vegas, Nevada, continuing to work on my internship. I became fully credentialed as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in 1999. I have two wonderful boys, a dog and two cats.
In 2008, I injured my back. As a competitive runner since the age of 14, I was faced with finding another alternative to exercise. I discovered yoga, and I feel it has truly transformed my life. So much so, that in 2014, I went through yoga teacher training, receiving my Registered Yoga Teacher license. I feel my yoga license compliments my training as a therapist; I use meditation, relaxation and other areas of yoga with my clients.
I work with children as young as 3 years old. Working with children and adolescents is something I feel very passionate about. Using a variety of quality play therapy methods, I can provide your child with a safe therapeutic environment.
I also work with the LGBTQ+ community. I have experience working with clients exploring gender and sexual identity.
