I am a certified Child-Centered Play Therapist and many of my clients are between the ages of 3-9 years old! Some of the reasons children are referred are: low frustration tolerance, difficulty regulating behavior and/or emotions, anxious or depressed behavior, traumatic experiences, inflexibility, poor social skills and more. As an extension of the individual work I do with children, I sometimes teach parents to play therapeutically with their children using the Filial Family Therapy model. This skills-based approach is a powerful way to help children heal within the context of the parent-child relationship.

A good connection is the most important part of therapeutic work but it can be hard to find a therapist whom your child or teen enjoys meeting with. Throughout the years, I have consistently heard from parents and other professionals that kids really like coming to see me and seem to get a lot out of the relationship we establish as well as the work we do together. Using the creative arts therapies in addition to a variety of other therapeutic approaches, I work individually with children, teens, and young adults to overcome the obstacles that are getting in the way of their success in relationships, work, and school.

The journey of therapy should be something you are drawn toward, not something you have to convince yourself to do. I want my clients to look forward to coming to their sessions, especially when what we're working through is tough. Therapy is a serious and powerful undertaking, but it doesn't have to be ominous. I think being down-to-earth and as lighthearted as possible about the institution of therapy helps to make it feel more accessible and fight any stigma attached to it. I look forward to working with you, you and your partner, or your family!

Have you ever felt like what you have been doing just isn't working anymore? This may simply be because, you've never known anything different! In reality, we are conditioned beings; so we tend to "stick with what we know." But what can you do when "what I know" isn't working anymore? We have to make change. Change is possible; but it is hard. We have to deeply examine the thoughts, behaviors, relationships, and coping mechanisms we are using in order to make changes to ones that are no longer helpful. This can be challenging, and I consider it an honor to support you through these life changes.

As your therapist, I will assist you in discovering or uncovering yourself. This might mean realizing some difficult truths about your personality and behavior patterns, tapping into your strengths, and identifying what coping skills work for you. Or, it might mean working through emotional pain, trauma, or barriers that prevent you from being your best self. In my years of experience, I have found that once a person’s authentic identity has been discovered through therapy, clients can accept who they are, confidently speak up for themselves and understand themselves with greater perspective.
