"I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Registered Play Therapist and have been providing therapy services to children and families in the Asheville area since 2005. My work with children is an integration of person-centered and strengths based perspectives. I use both non-directive and Cognitive Behavioral based play therapy as well as expressive arts to offer children a voice in their struggle to express themselves and identify and process their feelings in a safe space. I believe that "radical acceptance" and a strong trusting relationship are key in helping children and heal and grow."

"Through my 20+ years of experience working with individuals of all ages and backgrounds in a variety of settings, I have realized that a one-size-fits all model of treatment is not the most effective method of providing support and assisting with change. My therapeutic approach is grounded in the latest research on human and brain development, trauma and attachment, as well as the power of unspoken words and actions. I specialize in working with adult women, those with relational trauma, toddlers, pre-k and elementary aged children with behavior problems and their parents who struggle with divorce, co-parenting and parenting skills."
