Announcement icon Hi. I'm currently NOT taking any new clients. I'm hoping to change that by next year. I'll update this statement when I have availability.

About

I am a licensed clinical social worker who has extensive experience treating children, adolescents, and adults. I am a Registered Play Therapist. I utilize an eclectic combination of CBT, DBT, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness Meditation, Hypnosis, EMDR, Play and/or art. My theoretical belief is aligned with Adlerian concepts believing that the client has skills and abilities that can help them to overcome whatever may be challenging them. Anxiety, Depression, BiPolar Disorder, Social Skills, ASD (high functioning), PTSD, ADHD, Conduct Disorders are some of the diagnoses with which I have helped clients.
I have utilized Child-Centered Play Therapy, and other Play Therapies, with clients as young a 2. Play Therapy is a powerful and effective way of communicating to anyone, from 2 years to 80 years, that may have difficulty talking about or understanding their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
I have worked in public schools and private practice. I have recently opened my own private practice allowing me to expand upon my own beliefs and skills.
