I have worked with a variety of populations: children, adolescents, adults, individuals with substance abuse and co-occurring diagnoses.
Hi I am a passionate trauma therapist specializing in EMDR. I believe that my purpose in counseling is to help people find hope and build strength to walk through the challenges of life. I specialized in trauma therapy because these are the deep wounds we try to ignore and hide from others. These wounds may affect the trajectory of a person's life in countless ways. Trauma is subjective to the person, nobody may tell you what you have survived through isn't traumatic, these events may cause emotional, interpersonal and relational challenges and affect your school work, employment and financial freedoms.

At times the challenges we are presented with can be painfully overwhelming. Some of our choices and habits along with our need for companionship affect our judgment. Indecisiveness and complacency can manifest as unsatisfying patterns of behavior or disheartening relationships. I believe it is possible to create meaningful changes, to be the person you want to be and live a happy, fulfilling life. For young client's fun and play are important. Incorporating creative, expressive art and play therapy interventions is my specialty. This is a great way to connect with children and teens unresponsive to traditional forms of therapy.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Chandler, AZ provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Chandler build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
