I partner with families in their parenting journey through parent coaching, developmental guidance, play therapy , and family therapy.
Early childhood is an amazing and complex time. As a parent or caregiver of a very young child, there are times of joy, but also times of confusion, sadness, and worry. As an attachment therapist, I specialize in supporting caregivers beginning their families in pregnancy, or caring for very young children-infant, toddler, or preschooler- while going through transitions. Whether your child is struggling developmentally or emotionally, or has medical diagnosis, experienced divorce, adoption, or a serious life event, I can support you and your family to grow together and thrive.

I am certified in CBT for Mental Health and CPP (Child Parent Psychotherapy) and use play therapy , skill development and parent-child relationship building in session.
You work hard as a parent to give your child everything you can. Sometimes it's difficult to know what they need or what they're going through. You don't have to figure it out alone. I have been a child and family therapist for more than ten years and have helped families going through all kinds of challenges. Children change so much as they grow and they often struggle during times of change, stress or loss. When they are having a tough time it can impact the whole family. Your child deserves to feel better. You deserve to feel better. Let's start today.

I utilize art, play , and sand tray therapy in helping clients express themselves and enhance their coping skills.
Does your child or teen struggle with managing their emotions and behaviors? Do you need help in supporting your child's emotional needs? Does your parent-child relationship need to grow? Does your family need support to cope with a traumatic event or difficult life stressors? I work with children as young as three, neurodiverse clients with ADHD and learning challenges, and clients who struggle with anxiety, depression, and anger. I use neurodiversity affirming, person-centered, culturally sensitive, and trauma-informed frameworks to provide my clients lasting change.

I have additional training in Play Therapy , Sandtray and trauma.
I have always been amazed at the inherent healing qualities of art. By providing my clients with a safe holding environment, I pave the way to explore their concerns in therapy. Art has a way of quickly bringing issues from the unconscious into the conscious realm where they can be processed verbally or just witnessed. Art is wonderful for increasing tolerance of frustration, delay of gratification and learning to verbalize emotional states. I use all of the Expressive Arts to create individually tailored experientials to promote increased understanding and growth with my clients.

I believe a trusting relationship between counselor and client is important. I am comfortable working with individuals from diverse cultures and lifestyles and feel being accepting, objective, respectful, and genuine are essential characteristics for working with clients. My goal for the counseling process is to help clients gain personal insight, knowledge and tools that will facilitate continued growth and development after therapy has ended. As your counselor I do not have the answers to your dilemmas, instead I function as a facilitator of the process that will assist you with discovering your own solutions.

You dream of a calmer and fulfilled journey through your life. One where you can breathe in the fresh air and enjoy the benefits of your hard work. Taking a little extra time in the morning to enjoy a cup of coffee on your porch or seizing a special moment of your day. However, you find a contradiction in what your soul desires and in your actual life. You find yourself feeling busy, you barely have time to look up and often feel isolated and alone, as if no one quite understands your inner feelings of: anxiety, depression, sadness, trauma, relationship or self esteem concerns. When will your moment come to feel understood?

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.
