I want to help you or your child learn how to face the worries and fears that have left you feeling paralyzed.
Feeling worried much of the time, having panic attacks, and feeling so overwhelmed by your thoughts can be exhausting. My clients often find themselves in this loop of having debilitating thoughts, needing to get rid of them, keeping track of what triggers anxiety so they can avoid it, and yet the worry seems to grow even stronger. And eventually, they are beyond frustrated that these worries seem to be taking over their life. Sometimes, the thoughts are about contamination or fear of harming a loved one, needing to be perfect, or being judged and rejected. Whatever it is, the fears interfere with what's most important to them.

This is what I promise when you walk into my office you or your child will have a safe place to explore their feelings and emotions without judgment, and through their work with me, they will walk away with a better understanding of themselves. I believe that they really do have the answers and know how best to make the necessary changes in their lives. Sometimes, though, those answers are trapped and children can feel that they are unheard which can lead to behavioral problems and isolation.

I look at the developmental stages that a child missed due to trauma or loss.
The "language of children is play." I use expressive therapies like play,drama,sand,and art to help children process their problems and find answers. When a child plays out a solution to a problem he/she has the unique ability to actually experience success in the moment. I have taken extensive training to learn how to help children play out their problems. I am one of a very few Registered Play Therapist Supervisors in the state of Arizona.
