I have experience working with children, adolescents and their families. I am passionate about helping young people thrive. I like to challenge my clients to find their inner strength by helping them to develop effective coping skills. I like to engage my clients with creative interactions; this fosters trust and reinforces the practice of their skills. I believe development of one's strengths will create a lasting healing effect.
I offer support for my clients to develop coping skills, reduce stress, improve self-esteem and challenge negative thoughts and emotions. I am also a Registered Play Therapist specializing in Child Centered Play Therapy, Filial Therapy and Sand Tray Therapy.
To build a working relationship that best meets my client's goals, I use a variety of integrated approaches including play therapy, send tray therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, relaxation and other creative therapy techniques. Please note I do not provide individual therapy to adults, only children and adolescents.
