PCIT teaches parents play therapy skills and behavior therapy skills that are nurturing and effective.
My passion is supporting parents! Are you exhausted from your child’s emotional meltdowns and refusals to do what you asked? Are you embarrassed by their public tantrums? I understand because I’ve been there myself. If your child refuses to follow directions, hits, bites, throws things, struggles with attention or is disruptive at school, won't sit still at mealtimes, or refuses to go bed time, I can help with Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). Adoptive, foster and kinship families can especially benefit. Affirmative care is provided for LGBTQIA+ families. Your family constellation is understood, accepted, and celebrated.

I use play therapy with children and expressive therapy with teens and adults.
I help people living with depression, self-identity struggles, grief, trauma and have experience working within LGBTQIA+ and ethical non-monogamous communities. The children I see have/are experiencing abuse, behavior concerns, and life stressors. My role as a therapist is to offer authentic and genuine reflections and to help strengthen your mental capacity and confidence to handle internal and external stressors. I believe we all have a story to tell, some intertwined with tragedy and challenges, and that our time together is for you to tell yours. I want to sit beside you, listen, and hopefully offer you clarity and healing.

Some of my specialties include adults recovering from childhood abuse/neglect, understanding and resolving loss and grief, strengthening couples and marriage preparation, and child-centered play therapy .
Most folks can handle the ups and downs of life unless their closest relationships are in trouble. That's what brings people to me. With over two decades as facilitator of personal and relational growth in individuals, couples and families, I am psycho-dynamic (seek to 'peel back the layers') with individuals, helping them to become free from the emotional baggage of childhood. I offer a systems-oriention with couples and families along with some Gottman tools and Prepare and Enrich. I developed a therapeutic program for a children's home in CA and served as their therapist and staff trainer for 5 years.

These approaches include drama/ play therapy , psychodrama, art, guided imagery and sand tray.
My intention for you is to gently but dynamically create opportunities for growth and healing through flexible and creative alternatives to break through old patterns. I like to collaborate with motivated clients who are willing to work to change their lives. My goal is to help you discover your own solutions to your problems and concerns in an environment that is welcoming, empathetic and non-judgmental. I do that by carefully attending to your thoughts and feelings. Although I will offer specific "interventions" I believe that change occurs during therapy when there is strong motivation combined with the quality of our connection.

I use a variety of therapeutic techniques in my practice such as Family Systems Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Narrative Therapy, Strengths and Solutions Focused, Psychodynamic and Play Therapy for children.
MY PRACTICE IS CURRENTLY FULL AND SO IS MY WAITLIST. It takes strength and courage to decide to begin therapy. I believe there comes a time in most people's lives when it can be helpful to have a non-biased, supportive person to guide them through life changes or difficulties they may be experiencing. Therapy is a collaborative relationship between the client and the therapist. In order for therapy to be successful, a person has to be ready and want to make changes. It is also essential to feel understood and accepted by your therapist. If you feel that you might benefit from a caring, experienced therapist, please call.

Summer openings: We all come with areas of weakness and struggle but change and development can come. When working with children change takes place through play . They do not have the same thinking and reasoning skills, but they can play and practice through play to identify and feel emotions. With teen, I encourage them to use their own thinking power to consider new viewpoints or lens that they see through. By adjust that lens, situation and struggles can be viewed and address with new insight.

I work towards helping individuals create the life they want through analysis and reflection of what is working for them in the present and what has or hasn’t worked for them in the past. My approach is interactive and relational. I look for ways to empower my clients and reframe their experiences in a way that encourages growth. I think that the past plays a role in our present lives and that powerful healing can be achieved through connecting with an empathetic therapist. I will provide you a friendly, nonjudgmental space to do this.

Not accepting new clients at this time. I've been working with children, adolescents, and families for 20 years. As a parent myself, I'm familiar with the growing pains of raising a family. Each new day can be an adventure, whether we want it to be or not. I can assist you as you navigate the ups and downs of family life and parenting. I believe it's 'easier to build a child than to repair an adult.' Building a resilient, happy child begins at birth. Fostering resilience in your children through effective parenting and a supportive "village" is a gift they will have the rest of their lives.

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 Beaverton or for a Beaverton 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.
