About

You know your child best and when your gut feelings tell you that something is going on with your child, it’s time to act on that hunch. My practice is devoted to art and play-based therapies using evidence-based theories and approaches. Clients work at their own pace to creatively explore, understand their own strengths, and implement learned strategies for managing anxiety, stress, school, social concerns, big emotions, grief, gender/orientation and life transitions. I will gently, creatively and compassionately support and nurture your child to overcome their challenges and find their own path to well-being.
I offer client-centered art and play-based therapies where clients have the opportunity to move beyond words and go deeper within to explore, experience and express thoughts and feelings based on their needs and goals. Art expresses ideas and feelings when words are not enough, while toys in play therapy become the powerful words and actions for reparation.
My job is to be your child’s guide and bear witness to their growth and change in an environment that is confidential, safe, respectful and developmentally appropriate, while also keeping you involved through regular check-ins and consultations. You have to name it, to tame it (Segal, 2009) so don’t let little problems slide and become bigger problems.
