Why Play Therapy? This is a frequently asked question. I believe that through play, children express themselves in their own developmentally appropriate way. Through play and other expressive therapies, children can resolve problems, cope with difficult emotions,improve cognitive development and help resolve inner conflicts. Although I work mainly with children, my education and training also allow me the opportunity to work with adults on certain issues.

According to the World Health Organization, suicide is second leading cause of death among those with ages ranging from 15 to 29. Many professionals tell us that having direct conversations about mental health is essential for those who are struggling with depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, and other forms of mental illness. However, in my experience, these are often difficult subjects to discuss. There is often fear about "saying the wrong thing" or "not doing enough."

Stressed? Tired? Can’t seem to get ahead? Don't like yourself? Finding that sense of security and strength in the midst of changes, challenges, and relationships is difficult, and some feel that taking time to stop and reflect is impossible; yet often it is one of the most important steps in moving forward or getting unstuck. Stopping and working with a trained therapist can help facilitate change in meaningful and impactful ways. It can also help avoid a complete life derailment. I believe that the work I do with my clients is sacred, which is why I employee some of the most up to date and clinically validated treatment techniques.

Are you longing for a space to bring your whole self and know that who you are will be accepted regardless of your unique identity or sexual orientation? Many of us desire safe spaces to explore questions without judgement, coercion, or comparison. You crave the freedom to be your authentic self even if you aren’t quite sure what that looks like just yet. You are discovering that you are becoming someone who is the opposite of who you or your parents or church expected you would be. Are struggling to make who you are align with what you have always believed which no longer fits with the person you are today?

I love working with children through pre-teen ages and have also worked with a few higher-functioning teenagers. My typical day involves working with families that face challenges with behavior and working directly with children to decrease these behaviors while building skill deficits. I enjoy including family in my sessions and want to empower caregivers and family members so that they are equipped to handle behavioral challenges.

They want to begin the process of working through the pain they have experienced, so that they can heal and use what they have been through not as a launching pad for their future. They need someone to guide them along the journey toward that healing, so they can continue to thrive and be all that they were designed to be.
