About

Do you have a child or teen who is struggling with things such as anxiety, depression, or anger? Do you have a young child who has tantrums and difficulty listening at home and school? Are you a parent who needs help managing your child's behaviors? Then play therapy is perfect for you and your child! Using toys, games, art, music, and sand tray, your child can learn more effective tools to manage big emotions. Individual play therapy sessions will help your child learn coping skills, social skills, emotional regulation, and more!
As a Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor, I provide individual play therapy for clients as young as 3 years old. I also specialize in sand tray therapy, which I use with children, teens, and adults. For caregivers, I offer play therapy consultations, which is play-based assessment that provides a full report with treatment recommendations
Raising children is tough, especially with the effects of COVID-19 making things more difficult. I'm here to help you learn the resources and tools you need to help support your child's mental health. In-person sessions are available in Charlotte, North Carolina and virtual sessions in Missouri and North Carolina
