I specialize in seeing children who are in foster care and children who have been adopted from foster care, ages 6-12, for counseling. I provide trauma-informed therapy and utilize self-regulation psychoeducation and experiential practice, play therapy, CBT, and EMDR. Children who have experienced trauma (abuse, neglect, grief) often experience emotional dysregulation, behavioral challenges, anxiety, depression, and attachment issues. My office is designed to be a safe place for foster and adopted children to explore, express, and process their feelings and thoughts with an emphasis on calming the nervous system.
