About

I have thirty years of experience working with children and adolescents as well as ten years of experience working with adults. My specialties include grief, anxiety, depression, divorce, relationship issues, parenting, and school-related issues. I believe play is the natural medium of communication and work with young children age eight and older. I was previously registered as a play and music therapist. I am very open, authentic, calm and optimistic in all of my work. I am present and accepting of what is brought into the counseling room; I create a safe space for all.
I use client-centered, cognitive-behavioral, systems and psychodynamic theories of counseling in my work with all clients. I establish strong and authentic relationships with my clients that enable them to move toward their goals. I involve parents heavily in my work with children and adolescents.
I have a master's degree in music therapy and am a classically trained pianist. I use many creative techniques in helping my clients gain greater awareness as they grow emotionally, spiritually and socially.
