Why Play Therapy? This is a frequently asked question. I believe that through play, children express themselves in their own developmentally appropriate way. Through play and other expressive therapies, children can resolve problems, cope with difficult emotions,improve cognitive development and help resolve inner conflicts. Although I work mainly with children, my education and training also allow me the opportunity to work with adults on certain issues.

Struggling with suicidal thoughts and urges can be one of the loneliest and most frightening experiences imaginable. I love working with suicidal clients, because as a DBT therapist, I have a powerful tool kit for literally extinguishing suicidality. This is incredibly rewarding work. I enjoy working with teens and adults who struggle with overwhelming pain and suffering. The amazing thing is that we have fun doing this work together. It is fun and moving and amazing. If you want to make significant changes in the way you experience life, Dialectical Behavior Therapy is powerful work.

"Where do I turn? What do I do now?" If you are asking these questions I welcome whatever you have to discuss. I love to see a client walk into the room, ready to burst with the issues carried on the heart, and experience the relief that comes from finally sharing the burdens of the soul. I see mostly women, adolescents, and married couples, plus a few men who want to dig deep. I work best with people who are ready to work, looking for change, but aren't sure of how to get there.

I enjoy working with clients to clear past trauma or current blocks and assimilate the gifts that they discover within the process of unlocking habitual patterns and rejecting internal lies. I use mindful practice to support clients as they learn to become less judgmental of themselves and others and more compassionate. I believe that within this spaciousness we are able to open up into more of our true selves so that we have more insight and a broader view of our experiences. I see this as a creative, healing process.

Stressed? Tired? Can’t seem to get ahead? Don't like yourself? Finding that sense of security and strength in the midst of changes, challenges, and relationships is difficult, and some feel that taking time to stop and reflect is impossible; yet often it is one of the most important steps in moving forward or getting unstuck. Stopping and working with a trained therapist can help facilitate change in meaningful and impactful ways. It can also help avoid a complete life derailment. I believe that the work I do with my clients is sacred, which is why I employee some of the most up to date and clinically validated treatment techniques.

Are you longing for a space to bring your whole self and know that who you are will be accepted regardless of your unique identity or sexual orientation? Many of us desire safe spaces to explore questions without judgement, coercion, or comparison. You crave the freedom to be your authentic self even if you aren’t quite sure what that looks like just yet. You are discovering that you are becoming someone who is the opposite of who you or your parents or church expected you would be. Are struggling to make who you are align with what you have always believed which no longer fits with the person you are today?

Sound familiar? You appear to “have it all together” and fear if anyone knew how hard you were working, how inadequate you felt, or how you truly see yourself, it would all unravel. You're worried one more thing on your plate would send you into a crisis, and you already feel like you're drowning in overwhelming thoughts & feelings. You're creative & resourceful at finding ways to cope with the stressors of life, but these methods ultimately make things worse in the long run.
