My mindfulness based, play therapy training has taught me how to help children that have gone through or may be going through a trauma. A child's language is play. My play room offers a variety of mediums (sandtray, arts, puppets, role play through costumes, legos and many, many toys) that will help a child safely express what they need to in order to heal through their play. My sessions also will partially include the parents, where coping skills and behavioral strategies can be discussed before the play time ensues. I also run a virtual LPC group supervision for those seeking credentialing.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist who has been working within the field for 10+ years. My work focuses on both assessment and treatment of toddlers, children, and teens who are experiencing difficulties with behavior, mood, development, and cognition. Though I tailor my treatment to the individual needs of each client, I most often incorporate behavioral and solution-focused techniques and work collaboratively with others in the child's life. Now in private practice, I previously worked for various schools and clinics in Chicago, IL, Nationwide Children' s Hospital in OH, and the National Institutes of Health in MD.

Are you looking for a therapist for your child or adolescent because they seem down, anxious, or having trouble managing relationships or stress? Being a kid in the current times is so challenging, and having additional support from a therapist can be invaluable! Maybe you are looking for help for yourself. Maybe you are a parent struggling in that role. Or, you are trying to heal inner-child wounds from experiences you had early on in life, so you can feel better, more present, and less anxious in your here and now.

Sometimes our child has needs that can effect the entire family system. I focus on providing the child direct care, and provide parents the support to keep going, to keep working toward the potential you know your child has. Specifically, if your child is having ongoing school problems, is showing oppositional behavior, or has difficulty maintaining friendships. Additionally, if your child has been diagnosed, or your questioning whether your child has Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD, AD/HD) and needs "coaching" to cope with this problem, or he/she is showing signs of anxiety or depression, or abusing alcohol or drugs.

I also love working with small children.
The teenage years are the most vulnerable, exciting, and growing years of a young person’s life. Self discovery can often yield low self esteem, independence can easily shift to rebellion, and a slow maturation process often creates impulsive decision making. And when a parent’s warnings and worries don’t seem to have an impact on the teenager’s course, or when it feels too heavy to carry alone, it’s helpful to have another guiding force to help. Through counseling, an adolescent can feel understood, begin to understand themselves, and learn to understand and accept their role in the family and society.

Parent support is an integral part of my work and is fundamental to any child's treatment.
Children and teenagers are more overwhelmed today than ever. The daily challenges they face can be highly stressful and can lead to significant impairments in self-esteem, family relationships, school functioning, friendships, and other important areas of life. My ultimate goals as a therapist are to help young people find good life balance and develop a sense of peace within themselves. I enjoy providing a space where individuals and families can safely work through difficult situations, while learning to feel good about themselves, acquire problem-solving skills, maximize their natural strengths, and utilize the supports they have in their lives.
