Children don't come with a manual! If you feel like you're constantly trying to figure out how to manage your child's or teenager's emotions or behavior, let's talk. Through play therapy, parent consultations, and other creative therapies, I help children and teens improve their emotional expression, develop appropriate behavior during emotional times, and provide coping skills for children and parents. You deserve to feel wholly connected to your child and your child deserves skills to regulate and manage emotions effectively.

As a Registered Play Therapist, my primary focus is helping children through a variety of issues, and this speciality only adds to the quality of work I do with all ages - including parents! I seek to help those in need through an empathetic, but efficient manner.

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Registered Play Therapist. I received my Masters and Specialist degree in Mental Health Counseling, along with play therapy training, from the University of Florida.
