Helping families through difficult experiences has been my career's focus for over 20 years. In addition to utilizing child-centered play/art therapy and sand tray work, I incorporate a number of other treatment approaches unique to each client and their developmental stage and experiences. These strategies allow children to reveal their anger, fears sadness or frustrations in order to better understand and express themselves. My holistic and creative approach allows clients to feel comfortable, heal, overcome obstacles and embrace positive changes that can ultimately create a more satisfying quality of life.
It is difficult for parents to see their children in emotional distress. Difficult thoughts and emotions can create persistent and overwhelming feelings such as anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress. Together we strategize to learn helpful and creative discipline techniques, reduce stress and minimize painful emotions in practical and healthy ways.
My goal is to transform mental and emotional pain into sources of strength and self-knowledge. I believe that people can make great changes in their life and that when clients begin to trust the innate wisdom of the mind and body they move closer toward wholeness and healing.
