My experience includes working with children and adolescents in mental health crises and adults with serious mental illness.
At times, we all struggle with change or experience challenges in life. Therapy offers a safe space to talk through those challenges, it allows you to explore your past and present emotions, thoughts, and experiences. People are not cookie cutter and their treatment shouldn’t be either. Treatment should be individualized to meet the need of each individual person, which is why I take an integrative theoretical approach, incorporating several theories and techniques into treatment.

Practicing from a Child-Centered Play Therapy perspective, I believe that children are strong and capable.
Your child is your whole world. When they're happy, you're happy, and when they're hurting, the pain you feel for them is excruciating. But by the time you find yourself perusing the internet for help, you are already exhausted, have experienced many sleepless nights, and are losing hope. I would love to help improve your family's hopefulness and regain its vitality. Counseling provides a safe, compassionate space that can help children develop more full and healthy connections, which translates into feeling competent, worthy of love, and thus more resilient to handle life's struggles.
