My specialty is working with young children , typically ranging from 0-10 through child -led play therapy to foster a child 's self-esteem and emotional regulation through connective experiences within the play room.
Parenting can create many moments of frustration and overwhelm! I recognize that during this pandemic, parents have had to transform into roles such as teacher, cook, caretaker, worker, etc. If during this difficult time you are noticing big emotions from your child and you are struggling to maintain the emotional energy to help your child or keep yourself calm during distressful moments, parent support and/or child therapy might help! I provide concrete parenting tools and emotional regulation skills for you and your child to foster connection and resiliency.

Maybe you are coping with a stressful pregnancy? Or grappling with the loss of one? Are you postpartum, feeling unsure, worried, irritable, sad, unable to sleep even when the baby sleeps? Or perhaps, you are further along the parenting continuum, supporting your child through the various developmental stages - toddlerhood, adolescence and beyond. Is that meltdown normal? How do I help my daughter with difficult friendships? Is my teen's behavior typical? How do I tackle their constant internet use? Or maybe you simply want to empower yourself or your child with healthy emotional tools now to prevent potential issues later.

I have had success treating children , teens, and adults facing these issues using an embodied and holistic approach, informed by my practice in yoga and meditation.
You deserve to feel seen, heard and supported! We are all in a collective period of transition, and change naturally brings up feelings of anxiety and fear that can seem overwhelming and unmanageable. But you do not have to face these feelings alone. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist; I provide a safe space to feel, process, and integrate these changes into your life. I believe that the body should always be apart of talk therapy, and I use a variety of Mindfulness practices to help my clients become embodied before exploring the root of their problems.
