About

I am a licensed mental health therapist with experience working with person's of all ages. I utilize a variety of therapy techniques from Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Art therapy, EMDR and Sand Tray and Play therapy techniques. I have specific training in Play therapy techniques from KC play therapy. My focus is to develop a treatment plan that is unique and specialized for your needs and concerns.
I have several years experience in a therapeutic setting working with individuals with depression, anxiety, poor self-esteem, grief/loss, abuse, parenting relationship problems, school related problems, adjustment disorders and addictions. I have a special interest in working with children, adolescents and families. But welcome person's of all ages
Play therapy techniques are especially effective with children and adolescents to address any current or past trauma/abuse as well as addressing behavioral concerns, depression, attachment, anger and parent/child relationship issues. Play therapy techniques with families can build healthier communication and family unity.
