About

Are you looking to make changes in your life? Are you or your child struggling to cope with stress, anxiety, or depression? Do you feel isolated, stuck, or lost? With almost a decade of experience working with children, teens, and parents, I understand the challenges that they face and the impact that those challenges have on interpersonal relationships and individual mental health. I am passionate about helping individuals develop the tools that they need to better understand and interact with the world around them, create and move toward attainable goals, and cope with changes that they may be struggling with.
It is my belief that children communicate and process emotion through play. Using Play Therapy techniques, I employ art, toys, and games to help your child work through trauma, anxiety, depression, and life changes in a safe and compassionate environment. I also work with adults and couples in many areas including grief/loss and transition.
It is my priority to provide safe and empathetic care. I look forward to working with you!
