When children are struggling, their grown-ups suffer.
We provide play therapy at 3 locations in Jacksonville: Neptune Beach, Riverside, and Ponte Vedra Beach. Children have a limited verbal ability to communicate how they think and feel about the world. Young children (ages 2-12) most naturally process and share emotionally significant experiences though play. Play is their language. At The Healing Playroom, Registered Play Therapists use the child's most natural form of communication, instead of asking them to use ours. Play Therapy is a respectful, effective, and developmentally appropriate way to help young children who are experiencing social, emotional, or behavioral problems.

As both a therapist and professor at the University of North Florida, I specialize in young children and parenting. I help families facilitate a healthy, loving relationship with each other while helping children learn how to feel, process, and communicate feelings. This leads to more connection and understanding of themselves and others. As a parenting and play therapist specialist, I work with children of divorce, anger, tantrums, trauma, sibling rivalry, anxiety, depression, academic difficulties, and self esteem issues.

I adopted a family system's approach, as I believe that none of us live in a vacuum. We are all currently involved or have been involved in a family unit at some point. Many or our traditions, ways of thinking and acting comes from factors that influenced our original family and continue to affect us. It is important to look at where's we've been, where we want to go and then develop a road map to get there.

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) and devout Catholic. It is my dream to incorporate my faith in a direct way through my work with clients. Although I am passionate about my faith and combining it in practice, my goal is to allow the client to dictate where they are in the spiritual and emotional journey. The most successful therapy takes place when clients are able to be vulnerable, and express their needs honestly in treatment. I specialize in working with adolescents; however, I also work with children, adults and families. My background involves work with trauma, family issues, anxiety, depression, and attachment.
