I am honored to work alongside children and families to help them thrive. As a Registered Play Therapist (RPT) I believe it is through safe, nurturing relationships that children are free to express themselves through their natural language of play. With compassion and understanding, I use both a child centered and directive approach, while encouraging outside support systems essential to this work. My previous life as a certified teacher including special interest in drama, learning styles and special education richly inform my work.

I can best describe myself as a Competency-based, Cognitive-Behavioral, Family Systems therapist. Practically speaking, that means I have great respect for the challenges we all face in our lives and consider most so called "problem-behaviors" as logical adaptations to difficult situations that simply have outlived their usefulness. Therapy sessions strive to identify out dated problem solving strategies and replace them with newer more effective solutions. While I utilize a number of treatment techniques, I rely most heavily on Cognitive-Behavioral, Skills Training and Family Systems approaches.

Our uncertain times has likely increased stress and the “What if’s” into your or a loved one’s life. The constant change and uncertainty can foster stress and other emotional reactions. This may look/feel like feeling isolated, frightful, irritable, outraged, sad, guilt or even exhibiting maladaptive behaviors (e.g., substance use, risky behaviors, eating habits, sleeping habits, etc.). While there’s no one-size-fits-all approach, having a harm-reduction approach, focusing more on what we can control and less on what we can’t, decreasing stress, reducing your triggers and focusing on our strengths and supports can help.

I have enormous respect for the power each individual has in creating positive change in their life and work hard with individuals and couples to accomplish this. Positive change often means learning new skills and strategies that will help you live more successfully and develop more enriching and meaningful relationships. Positive change also means doing something different rather than doing the same thing over and over again hoping you will get better results. Positive change takes place in the present as we face our fears, take responsibility for our thoughts, feelings and behaviors, and move towards what we value.
