As a Registered Play Therapist, I work with children 1 year and older with a variety of presenting concerns: anxiety, ADHD, social difficulties, academic struggles, behavioral concerns, divorce, life transitions, self-esteem, anger, and grief. My passion lies with children and their families who have experienced trauma, abuse or attachment difficulties. Recent brain research has proven that the absence of a secure attachment with a primary caregiver negatively impacts the child's normal developmental process. In order to ensure inner change, my play therapy work often initially focuses on developing a positive, consistent, and nurturing relationship with an attachment figure.

Sometimes life is hard. It can be difficult to make it through. Things may pile on, one after another, and just when we think it can’t get worse, it does. Sometimes we forget who we are, our purpose in life, and our value. If this sounds like you, know that you are not alone. It would be my pleasure to sit with you, hear you, see you. I believe the therapeutic relationship is one of the most important aspects of counseling. It is through the relationship that healing and change occur. I offer individual therapy sessions for a variety of mental health disorders.
