About

Now accepting new clients (children, teens and adults). Everyone is different and the treatments are too. I specialize in finding what works best and keeping it interesting, so you want to keep making changes. I love using insightful and creative therapy approaches supported by research. Data always matters. You will have access to various treatment options such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused Therapy and more. In short, I prefer to use treatments that are shown to be beneficial in scientific reviews. Join me during one of my therapeutic role play games groups.
Change is hard to make and maintain. Motivation and engagement are leading factors in mental health improvement. By using play therapy, role play games, and gamification - therapy can become engaging! Play is a natural way to learn and it makes great therapy for everyone, children, teens, and adults.
Therapeutic role play gaming, gamification, and reward systems have shown to be beneficial to individuals with ASD, ADD/ADHD, PTSD, anxiety, depression and social anxiety, and phobias. Therapy that's fun can help people make the lasting and meaningful change that is needed to reach our goals. My practice is open and affirming to all individuals.
