I am honored to work alongside children and families to help them thrive. As a Registered Play Therapist (RPT) I believe it is through safe, nurturing relationships that children are free to express themselves through their natural language of play. With compassion and understanding, I use both a child centered and directive approach, while encouraging outside support systems essential to this work. My previous life as a certified teacher including special interest in drama, learning styles and special education richly inform my work.

I work with children and adolescents struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma, grief and loss, family changes, challenging peer relationships and the behaviors that can result from these issues. I have training and experience using Play Therapy and Sandplay, which employ children's natural way of communicating and learning, as well as other therapeutic modalities as appropriate to each individual. My approach is client centered and often non-directive, believing that when children experience emotional safety in a non-judgmental relationship, their inner wisdom naturally emerges to guide their learning, healing and growth.

I began working with kids and their families back in 1977 at San Diego Center for Children.
We are truly living in troubled times, globally and personally. Many of us find ourselves fluctuating between feelings of anxiety and/or depression. At 67 years old, I’ve spent nearly half my life – 35 years – as a Marriage and Family Therapist/Psychotherapist. Adding Hypnotherapy to my practice has been a game changer, and that, along with friends, colleagues, and many clients, I’ve learned ways of managing my thinking and thereby managing my emotions. This is what I do in my private practice and I can help you to do the same.

As a Christian I believe our faith and relationship with God are at the very center of how we experience our life, identity, and purpose and therefore how we view ourselves and interact with others. The Bible teaches that at the core our individual and relationship struggles are results of our sinful hearts and an imperfect relationship with God. The only way to true and lasting change is through a redeemed relationship with God and His continuing work in us to transform our hearts. As children of God we find value and purpose in Christ, shaping our identity and relationships.

I believe it is one's responsibility to provide care that is informed by current research and ethical guidelines. Children exist within a family system, which in turn exists within several larger systems. As such, I take into account micro and macro influences. In addition to a scientist-practitioner approach, I believe that a sense of empathy, of wanting to hear a family's story and providing them with that opportunity are important in order to translate empirical approaches into successful treatments. I do my best to provide informed, ethical and personalized care.
