About

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, I view my time with children in the play therapy room is inspiring. It is in there, when I gets to witness their inner strength, self-direction, and tendency to process through play. Children are naturally drawn to the creative materials around them and will use those materials as tools to understand and organize their world.
If you or your child is struggling, I'm here to help. Therapy is a valuable partnership that facilitates growth and change for issues big and small. Parents and children are resilient beings who can move through this confusing world on their own but when there is a trained partner that process becomes less lonely and scary.
