I am passionate about empowering individuals to reach their full potential. I am here to help kids, parents, new moms, and individuals who are looking for a refresh to their lives. I love coming along side individuals where they are at. I spend time getting to know you and your story. We all have a story to tell and I am here to listen in a safe, and caring way. My work with children is through play and I am passionate about including parents in the process.
I specialize in working with children ages 3+ using play therapy approach to uncover stress, anxiety, ADHD, self regulation, separation anxiety and anger issues. I also work with adults, specifically new moms, parents, and couples. Adult services range from grief, stress, anxiety, depression, infertility and relationship issues.
I have over 20 years of experience working with children and adults in a number of different settings. I am passionate about building a relationship where clients will feel safe, heard, and free to explore their current needs. This world can be hard to navigate and I want to see people refresh themselves by creating helpful tools and skills.
