Since children learn and grow best through play, play therapy can help them express their feelings, work through tough experiences, and find new self-confidence.
It’s not easy being a kid. You’re learning and growing—and the world isn’t always patient if you need to do so a little differently, or when “big feelings” get in the way. Not that being a teen or adult is easier. You might struggle under the weight of seemingly impossible expectations and stresses. Or you find yourself experiencing hurt in your relationships. Maybe you wish your child could handle their emotions better and really start to blossom. Or maybe, as a teen or adult, you want to find peace with yourself and healthy connection with others.

I allow the child to lead the play and make choices throughout the session.
Every child yearns to be seen, heard, and understood. My goal with our time is that your child feels more connected with their inner world and more confident in speaking for their needs. My style of counseling is particularly effective with children experiencing worries and having a hard time self-regulating and/or listening to their body. I want to support you (the care-taker) and your little one. Through our relationship, communication will improve, self-esteem will boost, we will practice mindfulness and autonomy, and problem solving. I have a specialty in building emotional intelligence in children with autoimmune disorders.

I welcome children, adolescents, and adults to therapy.
Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. If you are looking for things to change and are willing to work with me, things can get better. So many clients enter therapy with apprehension and a lack of hope for things to improve. I focus my practice on creating trust and getting my clients back on track as quickly and as comfortably as possible. Therapy begins with an end in mind and you and I would work together to make sure we are always making progress towards goals.

Prior to becoming a Counselor, I worked in the financial industry and worked as a stay-at-home mom to my now teenage children.
Life can often get in the way of us taking care of ourselves and providing the space for us to grow and thrive. Stress, trauma, and difficult experiences often interrupt our emotional well-being and create emotional distress. Everyone deserves the opportunity to find their true self to experience joy. Hence, it's my passion to come alongside kids, teens, and adults, and support them in the journey toward health and happiness.

Children, adolescents, and families are the focus of my practice. Developing and strengthening the parent-child relationship is especially important with young children. Helping children learn to feel more capable and independent is important for school age children. Developing autonomy and learning to make good choices is critical for adolescents. By creating achievable goals together and working in a safe and supportive environment, we are able to create positive experiences for both children and parents.

Recognizing that development is a complex process that involves nature and nurture, biology and environment, my goals are to assess the whole child, to suggest interventions that respect the individuality of each child and family, and to promote healthy and positive development. I have over fifteen years of experience in neuropsychological testing with a special focus in working with children and adolescents with learning disorders, attention related problems, anxiety/mood challenges, and head injury.
