Some of my other areas of expertise are grief/trauma and crisis counseling, career counseling, play therapy for young children and applied behavioral modification for those with special needs.
Facing life's challenges and transitions should not be done alone. When you encounter issues arising from lifecycle changes, relational turmoil or any other challenges that invoke a crisis or grief, it is important to have genuine and empathetic support to guide you without passing judgment. As a spouse of a retired veteran, I have over 20 years of experience adapting to the lifestyle challenges that the military community encounters. I have helped many families successfully cope with the military lifestyle, relational struggles and raise special children.

For children art and play is their language.
I enjoy counseling with all age populations, I have a special interest in working with children and adolescents. I will look at interactions, behaviors, and temperaments of the individuals and how family, friends, and society influence reactions. In assessing the situation, we will focus on the here and the now and reflect on the past only to promote change and growth in the present. New skills will be taught, and individuals are encouraged to take responsibility for their actions.

As a clinical mental health counselor with a concentration in play therapy , I utilize a variety of evidence-based approaches working with children, adolescents, and families who are navigating different learning abilities, mood disorders, anxiety, depression, trauma, and grief.
Life is a journey full of transitions that can bring unexpected change and heavy emotions. Children and adolescents often struggle with navigating and regulating such big feelings. Regardless of age, I believe we all have the ability to channel our inner strengths when given the correct tools and proper support.

Expressive Arts and Play Therapy techniques are also utilized to assist in identifying and communicating emotions when needed.
There is nothing more painful than the death of a loved one. Taking a first step to engage in therapy could be a very difficult decision. If you are here, it means that you have decided to take a step towards your healing. Grief is not only the loss of a loved one, but may also be a life changing event such as the end of a relationship, moving to a new country, or a change in living conditions. Losses can be both sudden and predictable. Predictable losses have the added layer of waiting for the loss to happen, followed by the loss itself. Grieving can be overwhelming and isolating. Find in our sessions a safe space to heal.

Life often feels hectic and out of control. At times it feels like life is living you, not the other way around. You feel like you have to always be "on". YOU FEEL EXHAUSTED. You have so many plates in the air and you put everyone else's happiness before your own. But now you are wondering why you bother because your sacrifices seem to go unnoticed and under appreciated. And somewhere in the process of taking care of everyone else you seemed to lose your sense of self. You can't even remember what it was like to live life as your best self, let alone how to get back to that place.

You've found disappointment because your life does not look the way you thought it would. Perhaps you are dealing with a major loss that has you feeling like a bomb went off in your life. Or perhaps you dreamed life would look a certain way and feel left behind, unfulfilled and unsure what you want moving forward. Or perhaps you are struggling to adjust to a life change. Even if your life looks good on the outside, you feel empty and hopeless. You cannot shake a nagging worry or sadness, and your friends and family might not understand how much your life feels like a battle. You feel alone, but you do not need to suffer in silence.

It's as if you are walking on egg shells every single day. Your child is controlling, bossy, stubborn and strong-willed. You've given up on 'my way or the high way' because the tantrums are just no longer worth it. Your son or daughter has ADHD, Aspergers, or is Gifted. You need help. You are looking for answers and solutions- and need immediate support to get back in charge. Some days it is absolutely exhausting- and other days it is so easy! There's the battles, the refusing to wear certain clothes, picky eating, not doing chores, not listening, not doing homework, acting out and the list goes on.
