I'm a play therapist by training and by heart, which means that I will meet you where you are and strive to improve the connections you make in your world. My practice primarily focuses on working with children and their families, but also adults struggling with life stress. I have more than 13yrs experience as a counselor, and more than 20yrs in the mental health field providing support and education to children and families. Behavioral issues, from anxiety/depression to opposition and mood dysregulation are my speciality. In addition I have years of experience working with foster care, adoption and other attachment issues.
I'm a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor; and use a client centered approach where the client takes the lead and I am there to support. I have training in sand tray, trauma, sexual reactivity, sensory processing issues, Client Centered Play Therapy and Child Parent Psychotherapy. Allowing a wide range of tools to draw from to help clients grow and thrive.
Play therapy is my passion and where the bulk of my practice is focused. I love the beauty of play as it meets clients where they are in a way that can make the counseling journey fun and less intimidating. To quote Mr. Rogers, “Play is a Child’s Language”. I want to help kids, their families and all individuals make positive connections in their environment
