I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) with 18 years experience working with children, tweens, teens, adolescents, young adults and their families. We can all agree that at every age and stage of life we encounter hurdles. As we attempt to negotiate these hurdles they may bring about anxiety, depression, anger, academic and other school-related struggles, emotional struggles, trauma, eating disorders, self-harm (cutting), grief, executive functioning difficulties and self-esteem issues. As we address and manage these conditions we find ourselves, often times, needing help to do so.

As a therapist, I specialize in treating anxiety, depression, addiction, anger, mood disorders, panic, social anxiety, ADHD, trauma, women’s issues, substance use, and parenting support. Issues such as these in children, adults, and teens can adversely affect health, work, school, relationships, and overall quality of life in those who experience them. While I work with all ages, a particular niche is working with children, as young as age 3. At that age, most of the work is done with the parents. It takes courage and strength to ask for help. I hope that I can help on your path to healing, if you are ready to take the first step.

My approach to counseling is that I believe in the power of a therapeutic relationship to help overcome many obstacles in a non-judgmental, nurturing, and safe environment for adults, children, & teens. I specialize in integrative, culturally sensitive, person centered psychotherapy services that help clients lead more fulfilling lives. I use Play and Sandtray Therapy in my work with children. Play therapy can provide a child with opportunities to express complex feelings, learn developmental skills and empower the child to grow and heal. I encourage different forms of self-expression such as art and play therapy.

I have always had a heart for children, especially those who are struggling. I believe that the mental health of children is of utmost importance as the experiences they have at a young age shape who they become as teenagers and, ultimately, adults. While counseling can be a serious matter for children, I believe in the importance of providing relaxed and enjoyable child-focused sessions. My therapy is centered around fun, play-based activities that help foster an environment which feels safe, inviting, and engaging for children.

“Play Therapy is based upon the fact that play is the child's natural medium of self-expression. It is an opportunity which is given to the child to 'play out' their feelings and problems just as, in certain types of adult therapy, an individual 'talks out' his difficulties.” (Virginia Axline). This world can be overwhelming, especially for children with ASD, sensory processing issues, behavioral issues, and anxiety. Therapy can help a child learn skills to make the world feel safer. Please allow me to help your child learn that they do not need to mask who they are and feel that they can take on anything the world throws at them.

My approach to counseling is a balance of a straightforward communication with the belief that clients are the experts of themselves. My goal is to help clients to discover their own inner wisdom and support a plan to move out of their stuckness. I believe that our early childhood experiences along with traumas we have experienced play a leading part in the stories we tell ourselves about who we are today.
