I specialize in working with children 8+ and as your child's therapist, I will find what connects best with your child by incorporating creativity and play as pathways for communication and connection.
Do you find yourself feeling overwhelmed as your child or adolescent navigates their big feelings? Maybe they often feel sad & angry. Maybe there's been a recent change at home. Maybe they are having difficulty succeeding with schoolwork or peers at school. There's a lot on the plate, but your main focus is on supporting your kiddo; it means a great deal to you. You're unsure where to turn to and support from friends and family is not enough. I can offer support as I have extensive training in helping young students build emotional awareness and developing their coping/resiliency skills.

"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.

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.

ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS (Couples, Families and Children) Everyone struggles at some point in time in their lives. Acknowledging this to another person can be incredibly difficult yet, freeing. True strength is in recognizing our faults (because we all have them.....yes we do) and working to change them. That is why we say the healthiest people are sitting in our office. The healthiest people are those who can acknowledge that they can't do it alone. Sometimes we need to trust in other people to guide us and give us perspective. It can be a challenge to open up to friends and loved ones for fear of judgement or rejection.
