I am aware that no single approach is the right one for every individual, and so I have been educated and trained on a number of modalities. More commonly, I work with children using play therapy, art, and sand tray to help them overcome their emotional and behavioral struggles. I coach and educate parents to build upon families’ strengths to enhance parenting practices and behaviors. I assist struggling partners break ineffective patterns of relationships and develop valuable ones.
My professional experiences have prepared me to counsel children,teens,and adults focusing on issues including but not limited to abuse, adoption/foster transitions, anger, anxiety, attachment, boundaries, childhood trauma, codependency, depression, divorce, grief,interpersonal relationship building, life adjustment, relationships and peer/sibling conflict.
My passion is helping bring healing to people who have been through a traumatic/stressful experience. I provide practical, productive, and positive assistance for my clients to find healthy perceptions of themselves and strengthen their relationships.
