About

My experience includes a wide range of treatment issues for both adults and children. I have experience in treating childhood behavioral issues from ADHD, Anxiety, Grief, Depression, Mood Disorders, Developmental Delays, Disruptive behaviors and Oppositional behaviors. I have extensive experience in helping children heal from trauma related issues such as Adjustment Disorder, Divorce, Anxiety, RAD, PTSD, and other Diagnoses resulting from emotional abuse, physical abuse, sexual abuse, and neglect. I have participated in specialized experience and training with the young child population from birth to age 5 and utilize the Ages and Stages Questionnaires to screen for developmental delays in children ages 6 and under.
I am a Registered Play Therapist with over 200 hours of specialized training in play therapy. I am dedicated to helping children meet their highest potential, all the while having fun, as they find the courage to cope. Come play the hurt away and find courage to cope with me at SAFARI KIDZ KOUNSELING LLC!
New credentials obtained in 2015! AutPlay Level II Certification and Certified Autism Specialist Credential.
