Now in Willits... I have been honored to have my private practice for over 31 years now. I see people of all ages for anxiety, life transitions, depression, and grief. I focus on strengths, supportive therapy, and the sacredness of grief expression. I mainly see individuals including teenagers, and children for Play Therapy. I have relocated to beautiful Mendocino County in Willits. Please call anytime to leave a message. I do have a waiting list as of October 2021.
My specialty is Play Therapy with children. Before becoming a therapist, I taught preschool for many years as well as Parent groups. Play is the natural language of children; we have creative fun learning to work through issues. We use art, sand tray, puppets, and dramatic play. For now, with the covid pandemic, Play Therapy is on hold.
I am a warm, patient, positive, creative therapist who can work with a variety of people. I have years of experience and continue to attend workshops and classes to better my skills. I strive to create a safe, nonjudgmental and caring space for my clients to grow. Healing is always possible.
