If you're here, it's likely that you're concerned about your child's ability to handle big feelings and life situations. Maybe you've noticed that they are spending a lot of time worrying, having trouble with friends, or perhaps are acting out at school. As a counselor, I'm here to support your child in finding their own path towards self-discovery and growth. My approach is centered on the power of play, which I believe is one of the most important tools for supporting children in their journey towards emotional well-being.
Play is the natural language of children. In play therapy sessions, I support your child using the tools they know best: toys, art, and movement. In our sessions, your child and I will work together to help them process big feelings, feel more in control, and build their self-esteem.
I work with children (aged 3+), preteens, teens, and young adults. Older children, teens, and young adults may prefer talking, art, and other activities outside of play. Your child is welcome to express themselves in whatever ways they feel comfortable. Please reach out to schedule a free 15-minute call to learn more.
