Let's Connect (828) 373-6117
I offer expressive and emotionally based therapies to children (ages 6 and older) a warm and nurturing environment which provides a safe space to do any healing they might need to do to move forward, to feel better about who they are, or share what might have happened in their lives that makes their heart ache. I help teens and young adults navigate the turbulence of hormones, and school work, friendships and home life, college and relationships, and all the other activities and significant events happening, while trying to discover who they are and what makes them feel most alive.
As an child & teen therapist, I use creative and emotionally based therapies to help young people discover their self-worth and potential. Additionally I incorporate the use of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), ECO/Nature therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).
Having worked in the public schools for many years, I know how to hold space and listen to your child or teen. I offer creative outlets for expression when words are hard to find. We will search for silver linings in mistakes and obstacles, establish goals and celebrate successes, as they grow more into the person they long to be and their authenticity.
