Making the client feel comfortable is of top importance to me so I have found that expressive arts, play therapy , and other useful activities can help ease the stress of talking to a stranger.
We find ourselves traveling down the same roads all the time, same route to work, school, and even family and friends' houses. Sometimes we become so used to the way we are living that change is often difficult to achieve. I believe this is because we are stuck in ways of thinking because we have done it for as long as we can remember. "That's just the way I am." If you are looking to find a new way of doing things because you are unsatisfied or stuck in a rut, I would love to help you navigate change.

If you or your child are living with strong emotions, suicide attempts, self-harming, hospitalizations, chronic relationship/behavioral issues, or roller coaster emotions; life is very tough. You may feel like you are held hostage by these emotions and have a difficult time imagining that a 'normal' or healthy life is even possible. As a therapist trained in the specialty of DBT therapy, I believe that EVERYONE is capable of creating a life worth living.

Individuals seek therapy for many issues. I have been afforded the opportunity to work alongside people that want help in managing Anxiety, Depression, Self-Esteem barriers and daily stress. Often times these issues are masked by deep rooted trauma, grief and abuse. Individuals need encouragement, support, feeling that they are heard and validation while on their journey to healing.

My goal is to create space for you or your child to experience the freedom that comes with the challenging work of growth and healing. Whether you are a new mother in need of a place to sit with a cup of coffee and feel supported through postpartum adjustment; a parent who longs to help their child cope with trauma, a foster parent desperate for space to process the demands of selflessly loving children who have experienced trauma; or if you are ready to heal from trauma of your own, my door is open. It is my sincere honor to come alongside you as you take this courageous step toward tangible and positive life change.

Our lives can take many different paths, and finding the path that meets our needs and values can be hard to navigate. It can leave us in a place of feeling lost, overwhelmed, broken, and disconnected from our sense of self. This sense of hopelessness can prevent us from seeing the power within ourselves. I would be honored to meet you where you are at, and be your hope holder until you are able to see the hope that is in every situation.

I enjoy working with children and teens ages 4 to 17 and cater my approach depending on the age of the child. Some of the children I work with have been through really difficult and painful traumas, others have experienced great loss. Some kids are struggling to express themselves or with regulating their emotions, and others are struggling with behavior challenges in school or at home. Because of my work in the schools I have unique experience engaging with children with ADHD, anxiety, depression, self-harm behaviors, and other social-emotional concerns. I also enjoy working with children and teens with disabilities!

People painfully tell me, “It will never get better… I’m not good enough… I’m a burden…there is no way they will see my side…it will never change”. Struggling with these thoughts is common when dealing with the overwhelm of depression, anxiety, substance abuse, technology addiction, self-harm and other issues that disrupt your life. I help my clients not only identify what they are struggling with, but tools to cope and find their way to a beautiful life of freedom beyond these problems.

I have experience using art, music, and play therapy along with talk therapy to process thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
I value every encounter with an individual. I am grateful to be in a field, as a Therapist, where I can enjoy divine connections daily - thanks to the incredible courage of people. Specifically, thanks to a “yes” to the journey of growth, healing, and one's readiness to get "unstuck." Although I believe that the therapy office is a place where much of an individual’s healing and recovery from life challenges takes place, I also understand that the real tests happen outside of those four walls. I want to help you to prepare for those tests, cope, build healthy relationships, and affirm yourself in the positive.

I have trained extensively over the years in attachment, play therapy , FASD, and Theraplay.
I am a clinical behavioral therapist with a private practice focusing mainly on children and families. I enjoy working with children and use various play techniques to explore the lagging skills which may have developed strong responses and behaviors to stressors in your child. There are many instances in which I will accept the parent as client to address behaviors in the home. I work with siblings when appropriate and have worked with clients ages 4-adulthood.

Did their teacher think they have ADHD? Did a doctor suggest depression or attachment issues? Kids share and find help not by talking, but through play .
Maybe you constantly push snooze on your alarm because you can't feel excited to be alive. Or, anxiety has you on edge, as if you've been drinking 50 cups of coffee. Perhaps you're struggling in relationships: either you're too clingy or too distant. Getting out of painful cycles can seem as impossible as breathing underwater. No one person is an expert on being well. Even so, our hearts were designed to heal. In tiny, baby steps, helping you develop sensed comfort and safety can make all the difference to well being. It can be just as painful to love a child who is struggling. Maybe the anger outbursts are overwhelming.

I understand the role that illness, pain, sleep disorders, parenting, & caregiver stress play on a person’s mental health and quality of life.
“ What now ? ” It doesn’t matter whether you have struggled with anxiety, depression, and general mood instability throughout your life, or if an unexpected event has catapulted you into crisis and you are struggling to stay afloat. Both situations are difficult but neither need to feel hopeless. I am offering you a life ring and an anchor so you can regain confidence in your course. My background includes medical social work, school social work, and severe and chronic mental health issues which provides me a unique perspective and I have the ability to relate well with caregivers, parents, adults, and children.

Play Therapy
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counseling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.

If you're looking for play therapy in Caledonia or for a Caledonia play therapist, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists and play counselors.
