You can expect me to listen to you non-judgmentally with some humble humor, while giving you useable skills and strategies to try that will be beneficial to you. I don't see my therapy approach as one size fits all, because we are all unique in our life experiences, strengths, and struggles. My role is help you find some personalized solutions to move forward in your life goals.
Play therapy is recognized as an effective method for treating children’s emotional and behavioral struggles. Because this therapy utilizes toys and play (a child’s natural medium of expression), children can express their feelings more easily than through words.
I understand that individuals and families reach out for support and answers when they are hard pressed for solutions. However, seeking help is a courageous step towards taking action to make things easier for yourself and family to thrive. I provide support and empower the best in every client. I work alongside you to identify your needs and goals.
