"The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct" (Carl Jung). I find great joy in working with children of all ages in a therapy setting. It's an honor to me when a child chooses to trust me with their wishes, their fears, and their wonders about life. I have experience working with children individually, in hospitals, and through non-profit work in the community. Through the use of play and arts based therapies, I help to facilitate an environment where children are able to truly be themselves, express their emotions, and have the ability to create the answers they need for themselves.

Therapy is an interactive and dynamic process. Through non-directive play therapy techniques, as well as more directive cognitive techniques, children and adolescents are able to work through challenges in their lives. This work, alongside a caring and competent therapist, can enable them to emerge with more skills to deal with future challenges and a belief that they have some control in their lives. Parental engagement is key, and I am also available to coach parents through challenging issues with their children , helping them to better understand and appreciate their children .

I specialize in working with children , teens, and their families.
Life does not come with an instruction manual (I know, it’s the worst!). But that doesn’t mean you have to give up hope. Sometimes a safe space and a listening ear is all you need to create your own manual. You are unique and so are your challenges. I am here to provide a warm, compassionate, playful, non-judgmental, safe space and empower you to join me in working through those challenges. I believe that therapy should be all-embracing, genuine and rooted in the therapeutic relationship.

Choosing the right therapist can be a difficult decision; especially when they're working so closely with you or your child . You want someone who listens, understands and hears your concerns but is also supportive and nurturing. Let me begin by stating that I provide a safe environment where I incorporate empathy, encouragement, and laughter as part of the therapy process. But most importantly I believe in building a relationship with every person is the key to the healing process.

You know yourself and/or your child better than anyone does.
Being a kid, teen, or young adult these days is pretty complicated, and parenting can certainly feel overwhelming at times! Sometimes, challenges show up that get in the way of the child or teen years being the carefree time of life that we want it to be. Sometimes, parents need a little support to help navigate unexpected issues that may arise in their families. Counseling can help during these times by providing a safe, trusted space to seek solutions, growth, and healing.

Child Therapists

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
