Why Play Therapy? This is a frequently asked question. I believe that through play, children express themselves in their own developmentally appropriate way. Through play and other expressive therapies, children can resolve problems, cope with difficult emotions,improve cognitive development and help resolve inner conflicts. Although I work mainly with children, my education and training also allow me the opportunity to work with adults on certain issues.

Welcome! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who specializes in working with young children, teenagers, and families. Children and teenagers often express themselves through behavior rather than words, and I use a variety of creative, play, and activity-based techniques to connect with my clients throughout the counseling process. I believe that counseling should be individualized for each person and will tailor interventions based on individual interests and strengths. My goal is help children and families learn more effective ways to manage difficult feelings, improve communication, and create stronger bonds.

Let's start out by acknowledging the last year has made it more difficult to ignore the impermanence and unpredictability of life. Many of us have experienced conflict, unexpected changes, and loss. We may also feel more disconnected than before. You are not alone! This year has also reminded us of our amazing resilience! We have an amazing ability to continue to engage in life with open, compassionate hearts, finding connection, peace, joy and rest. Can you imagine going through your days feeling thankful for everything you have, feeling loved and supported in your relationships and excited about your work?

I enjoy working with individuals across the life span. I especially have a passion for working with families of all types. I have a credential as a Registered Play Therapist and advanced training in Emotion Focused Couple Therapy. What that means is that I tend to work from Attachment Theory. I believe that all individuals were meant to be attached to people in our lives and sometimes things happen that hurt that attachment. With that being said, when a client works consistently with a therapist, even severe problems can either totally resolve itself or become more manageable.

"We do not see things as they are, we see them as we are." -Anais Nin per Talmudic origin. We must create things twice; once in our minds, and once articulated. When we think our thoughts, it lights up one part of the brain, and when we speak our thoughts, it lights up a different part of the brain. There is often something very different when we articulate our thoughts, and they change in some way. Talking out these experiences in a narrative way assists us in making sense of how we feel about those experiences.
