Psychotherapy can help us to understand ourselves, our histories, patterns and relationships. It is a tool that can increase clarity and direction so that we can move more confidently in the world. We are a complex mixture of our experiences, the relationships most significant to us, what we think about ourselves, the stories we tell ourselves, and how we view our purpose or place. With this in mind, I aim to do a few specific things in my therapist role: To think about how we have come to be *who* we are, to accept this, and to create space within ourselves where we might exercise new or different ways of being.

I am a certified Child-Centered Play Therapist and many of my clients are between the ages of 3-9 years old! Some of the reasons children are referred are: low frustration tolerance, difficulty regulating behavior and/or emotions, anxious or depressed behavior, traumatic experiences, inflexibility, poor social skills and more. As an extension of the individual work I do with children, I sometimes teach parents to play therapeutically with their children using the Filial Family Therapy model. This skills-based approach is a powerful way to help children heal within the context of the parent-child relationship.

Highly sensitive hearts, introverts, deep feelers, the socially anxious, and those with emotionally intense personalities are welcome here. You feel ALL the feels. All the time. Sometimes your emotions seem so powerful that you feel out of control or that it is unbearable. You form strong attachments to people, pets, places, and things but struggle with stability and security in your relationships. You are fed up with being told that you are 'too emotional', 'too needy', 'too clingy', or 'too sensitive'. Maybe you use alcohol, drugs, food, or suicidal thoughts to cope with your overwhelming emotions.

Life decisions and transitions can be hard, and you want assurance you are making the right decisions for your future. You exceed expectations while at the same time wondering if you are good enough. You don't feel like your best self in your relationships, and that leaves feelings of guilt and shame.
