About

Each day we have in life is a bright new adventure just waiting to be discovered! I view my work in counseling as an adventure I am privileged to share with each client! In my experience I have worked with individuals as they have struggled to overcome and cope with grief and loss, anxiety, depression, trauma, sexual abuse, relationship conflict, ADHD and other distressing circumstances. I enjoy helping individuals, couples and families create healthy, functional relationships and lives that flourish. My focus is on strengthening the family system, identifying each individual's needs, and discovering hope for their future.
A portion of my work includes working with children and teens who have experienced various forms of trauma. I utilize play therapy, sand tray therapy, and expressive arts therapy as a primary intervention with children and adolescents. Play is a structured, theoretically based approach to therapy.
Why play therapy? Through play children learn to communicate, express feelings, modify behavior, develop problem-solving skills, and learn a variety of ways of relating to others. Play is a child's language and is a fun, enjoyable activity that elevates their spirits and brightens their outlook on life.
