I offer art and play therapy for children.
Sometimes people are stuck in an unhealthy pattern of interacting with themselves or with others. I help clients understand why they have that unhealthy pattern, and I help them create the changes they want. I help clients unlock the things that are keeping them stuck, and I help them move forward in life. I help children process and understand things that are happening in their life, especially if those things are overwhelming. I believe that sometimes a person needs to have some extra help in their life journey. I want to be your ally during this part of your life.

Therapy provides a fun way to examine tough situations and gives both parent and child the tools to move into the future with enhanced family communication, improved mood and more success at school. Cognitive therapy with adults helps to decrease the anxiety or depression that they may feel in daily living. Adults may be processing a specific event or relationship issues that decrease their potential for happiness.
