About

Looking for the right therapist that’s a good fit is not easy . Hopefully I can help your children- family feel more content. Every child and family has a story to tell that must heard for emotional well being. As a child and family psychotherapist, I incorporate play-talk therapy & feelings games: I created a new "Petals Parenting Technique" for quicker easier solutions. I enjoy working with families on becoming Behavior-Detectives, investigating the hidden feelings and emotional needs hiding underneath behaviors. Listening with EMPATHY and Compassion plus learning new skills really works. Please reach out if this resonates!
My goal is to ensure that you are getting the right treatment with the right therapist. Children have reported they feel better and more confident when learning about feelings. Parents and children thrive when they become Behavior-Detectives and understand the feelings and emotional needs. Learning new skills and new behaviors is empowering.
I am a holistic eclectic psychotherapist for over 25 years, attended Columbia Graduate School, worked at NYH Cornell. I guide children from negative hard emotions to positive emotions and everything in between. Figuring out their feelings through fun adventures is a wonderful important experience.
