I enjoy working with all my clients. I work with children, adolescents, and adults with a myriad of issues. I have a particular expertise and understanding working with trauma issues. I have 15 years of police experience that allows me to better understand the needs of the service professionals (police, fire, nurses, military, etc.) clients and their families and how best to help them in a compassionate and caring way. The needs of these individuals can be unique. From substance abuse and anger control to depression and suicidal ideation, the stressors of these individuals require an understanding and knowledge, which I have.

While I am skilled in working with a wide variety of clients, I most enjoy working with children, teens and adults who struggle with authority figures and themselves. I enjoy helping clients learn to know they are loved and heard. They often feel like they do not have a voice and they rebel because it has been more successful then being respectful to authority figures. The goals for the client would be learning to manage and express their feelings while learning to be respectful to one self and then respectful to others. The child's parents would learn and use positive parenting skills to help instill child's goals.

“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.

I work with couples, siblings, parent-child dyads and entire groups of family members.
I believe that when families are doing doing well, all of its members benefit. The quality of our relationships, in particularly with our family members, have a strong impact on our development. Reflecting on patterns and letting go of those that are no longer working is of key importance in our work together. This is best done when families feel physically and emotionally safe with each other. Regardless of who is involved in the family work, a change in one member, or some members as in the case with couples, can impact the family status quo.
