I enjoy helping children address cognitive, behavioral and emotional challenges through the use of therapeutic play. I partner with parents supporting them in strengthening their relationship with their children. I have worked with many families experiencing various difficulties such as divorce, domestic violence, abuse, trauma, anxiety, grandparents raising grandchildren, abandonment and grief and loss for over twenty years. I am a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor and train other therapists how to become skilled therapists and obtain their credentialing of Registered Play Therapists. I also conduct trainings, teaching professionals how to be effective while working with children.

I conduct Sandtray Therapy with adults which utilizes a tray of sand, in which clients create scenes using miniature objects to represent images of what is happening in his/her world.

By making concrete what the inner voice is expressing, Sandtray Therapy provides a language when words can't be found or aren't enough to move forward. This can be a way to become unstuck and allow the solution to emerge. We often have answers within us, which are hidden from our awareness.
