**ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. NOW ACCEPTING BLUE CROSS & REGENCE INSURANCE** I have been practicing therapy since 2007. I work hard to make sure that I understand the needs of those I serve while providing therapy that is informed by your values. I look at the challenges that may bring you to therapy as symptoms of a biological, psychological, social, or spiritual breakdown. My therapy is focused on looking for solutions from each of these contexts. I have experience working with people of all ages and a variety of issues in my work with families, couples, individuals and children.

My specializations include child directed family therapy, developmentally appropriate parenting practices, handling marital conflict, and the process of finding one's self. I have training and experience in child-directed play therapy and help parents learn this play as a way to connect with their children.

I am one of only two Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor's in the Twin Falls, Idaho. This credential comes from the Association for Play Therapy and highlights the extra experience, supervision, and training that is required to utilize Play Therapy effectively.
