Everyone needs a soft place to fall. The loss of a loved one disrupts everything in our lives and the intense emotions of grief can be overwhelming. This can be especially true for children who don't yet have the words to express themselves or for adolescents who are struggling with their need for emotional support but wanting to appear "normal" among their peers. Specializing in expressive therapies such as sandtray therapy, I help children, adolescents and adults cope with loss or trauma, and I help adults in need of assistance with learning more adaptive ways to cope with life's developmental challenges and changes.
With more than 10 years of experience working in school-based mental health settings, I am also a skilled interventionist for children with behavioral challenges. I will collaborate with you and your child to teach skills to understand and help change difficult behaviors over time. Contact me to schedule a free 15-minute consultation.
