I have been working with children, individuals, & families for over 20 years with anxiety, depression, parenting. Throughout my professional career, I have worked as a counselor,adoption specialist and a school counselor. I have always had a passion for working with children & adults and have had extensive training in play therapy (Graduate Certificate in Play Therapy from UCF) and understand that play is the language that children use and is important for them in counseling. Play therapy can be used with children, adolescents, and even adults and is a non-directive approach which helps the individual express them-self freely.
I have helped many adoptive families explore their journey of adoption through private and state adoptions. I am well trained in preparing families for adoption, completing adoption homestudies,post placement supervision, and any adoption concern that may arise. Brevard Counseling is also a licensed child adoption placement agency by DCF.
I am a Registered Play Therapist. I provide individual, family counseling, play & expressive art counseling. I have worked with many children of all ages to help regulate their emotions & build coping skills. Additionally, I have been trained & specialize in CPRT (Child Parent Relationship Therapy) & hypnotherapy. FREE Consultation. Evenings & Weekend Appointments!!
