Is your child struggling with anxiety, low self-esteem, or difficulty expressing emotions safely? Are they having a difficult time coping with a trauma or loss? Maybe you want to strengthen your relationship with your child. Play is the natural way that children express themselves, and they need a special environment filled with toys and games to help them with the hard work of learning new skills and addressing unpleasant memories. Play and art therapy can be used to resolve trauma, teach and practice coping skills, increase emotional regulation, decrease anxiety and enhance attachments.

Psychotherapy can be an opportunity for healing and transformation. When life seems to be stagnant, painful or overwhelming, a therapist can offer solace, guidance and a container for the psychological process. I have spent several years accompanying others on the journey through healing and have a unique style of working with people. I seek to offer a non-judgmental place to work through whatever is causing pain in the life of the clients I treat. I believe each person has the courage and ability to overcome what holds them back and to embrace the person they were always meant to be.

I know firsthand just how hard it can be to change attitudes and behaviors from the self-defeating and unfulfilling to the completely self-honoring and rewarding. Especially when big life transitions are involved, like early recovery, an approaching empty nest or learning how to manage attachment issues when a person defines their worth through a perceived role. What about curbing those impulsive yearnings that we know won’t fix our issues like; eating every cookie on the plate; not eating at all to jump-start weight loss; downing a few drinks to take the edge off; going on a shopping adventure; the list goes on...

Experiences shape our thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and relationships. A traumatic experience can greatly impact the way we view the ourselves, others, and the world; impacting our ability to trust, feel safe, and interact with others. By processing our perceptions of experiences we can create a more healthy sense of self and identity. Often with adults, this can be done through verbal processing. With children, this is done through their primary means of communication; Play. Art, games, dance, sandtray, and dollhouse play encourage open expression and invite the child to demonstrate what is occurring in their innerworld in a safe way.

You can’t shake the nagging thoughts: “I’m a failure,” “I’m not good enough,” “I’m not worthy of love.” Your unresolved “stuff” – the anxiety, PTSD, trauma – keeps popping up and causing you trouble.
