I love watching young minds grow and learn through play and art in therapy.
Life can be challenging. Sometimes we need a little extra support and someone to listen. Finding a new counselor can be challenging. I consider it a privilege and honor to provide a safe space for you to share your story, when you are ready. Children need a safe place to learn about emotions, express their emotions and share their stories. Just like adults, little kids have big emotions too! While I see individuals through all developmental stages and with many different mental health disorders, my special areas of interest include anxiety, depression, perinatal mood disorders and eating disorders.

Is your mental health impacting your day to day life? Do you feel like you can’t keep up a schedule of your daily routines/habits and responsibilities? If so, you are not alone. Occupational therapy is about promoting your daily function and regaining meaningful occupations. For individuals this may look like improving your daily hygiene, building a sleep routine, eating healthy, or making time for kids/family responsibilities. Others may be in OT to build cognitive skills, emotional regulation, social skills, job skills, or simply transitioning back into the community. OT focuses on what is meaningful to you.

A favorite quote of mine: "My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style" - Maya Angelou- But many days don't feel like this. Is the joy you once felt is missing? Are you are going through the motions but not really living? Relationships, parenting, work, aging parents, financial struggles, grief...if life isn't what you thought it would be and you feel like you are trudging through your days, you have come to the right place.

My life-long passion is to help children, adolescents, and families heal. I work with children with a range of presenting concerns including attachment, behavior, mood and anxiety. I provide evidence-based treatments within a caring, trusting therapeutic relationship. I enjoy working with children that are considered "complex" including those who have had early developmental trauma and those who have behavioral difficulties that cause significant challenges. Helping parents to become more attuned and connected allows for healing across generations.

Play Therapy
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counseling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.

If you're looking for play therapy in Fargo or for a Fargo play therapist, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists and play counselors.
