I specialize in a developmental play therapy model to enhance a child's ability to self regulate, learn new social skills, resolve trauma and improve child-parent relationships. My training includes certification as a Registered Play Therapist and my experience with children and their families is focused on brain based therapeutic play that is informed by the neurobiology of each child. The field of neuroscience has validated the use of play therapy for a broad variety of childhood disorders. This model can eliminate distressing behaviors and attend to appropriate developmental tasks. My experience with child therapy has enriched my work with parents, couples and individuals.
