About

I have a passion for working with children and have worked with kiddos of all ages as a public school teacher and a counselor since 2011. I love incorporating play, art therapy techniques, and animal assisted interventions in my sessions. I strive to create a trusting relationship with each child and their family and create a safe and fun space for processing feelings. I believe that each client has innate strengths and abilities that can help them work toward therapeutic goals. I provide play therapy, individual counseling and canine assisted counseling for children, adolescents and teens ages 3-18.
Play therapy is a developmentally appropriate way for children to process and express their feelings. As a Registered Play Therapist, the children I see will use toys, art, games and activities to grow and work towards therapeutic goals. Through play, children can learn to express emotions, enhance social skills and build self-confidence.
Canine Assisted Therapy involves incorporating a therapy dog as a partner in the therapy process. I am certified as an Animal Assisted Counselor through Texas State University’s Animal Assisted Counseling Academy. My professional therapy dog, Cleo, and I work together to help clients work toward goals with the use of animal assisted interventions.
