Announcement icon I am offering HIPAA compliant TeleHealth therapy with video. I am loving play therapy with activities only possible because kids are home!

About

I love to work with women and children who are suffering due to physical, emotional, mental, behavioral and/or situational struggles. My clients have experienced trauma, grief, major life transitions, or have been diagnosed with conditions such as ADHD, anxiety, depression, or mood disorders. Goals in therapy are solution-focused, fostering greater connection to loved ones, peers, community and self. I believe the path of physical & mental health draws from inner strengths, your support community, and new skills in a safe space with creativity, play, and education, as well as practicing new tools in therapy and at home.
I'm passionate about helping clients improve quality of life & connection. For 15 years I offered elementary school art education, facilitating creative expression. I am trained in various evidence-based treatment models, including play therapy for the healing of children’s trauma and other challenges. Supporting kids' grown-ups is an integral part of this.
When kids are weighed down by adult problems or the sadness and anxiety of feeling “not enough," I offer a safe & fun space to discover their strengths and supports. I support caregivers who are overwhelmed & worry to the point of despair. There is always HOPE. I love helping families find power they have yet to discover.
