About

As a Licenced Clinical Social Worker and Registered Play Therapist Supervisor with advanced training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, I specialize in working with couples and children. I have over 20 years of clinical experience working with families to help them cope with a range of emotional, developmental, or situational issues.
Play therapy is an evidenced-based treatment that is used for multiple mental health conditions and concerns including anger management, grief and loss, divorce, crisis and trauma, generalized anxiety, socialization difficulties, ADHD, autism, depression, oppositional and defiant behavior, and separation anxiety.
As a current student of the renowned Chicago Psychoanalytic Institute, I am enhancing my skills and training treating couples in distress. I primarily use a relational approach to help couples reconnect and flourish. I also provide pre-marital counseling, parenting support and education, as well as divorce mediation.
