EMDR, Energy Psychology, DBT which incorporates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with Mindfulness, and Play Therapy for children all tend to relieve anxiety & depression.
Please leave the name of your insurance when you contact me so I can best serve you. Adults, children, adolescents, and their families are welcomed in my private practice, and playroom for the children. My specialty for over 25 years has been working with children, adolescents, and their families. After becoming a Level II EMDR trauma therapist in the past 20 years, I have worked with many adults challenged by difficulties. Both my adult and child clients are often faced with depression, anxiety, and grief commonly created by divorce, death, adoption, abuse, and feelings of hopelessness, anger, and poor self-esteem.

I have specialized training in Expressive Arts and Play therapy , and I am a trauma-informed practitioner.
I am currently accepting new clients. Is your teen or pre-teen struggling? Maybe you've noticed a decline in self-esteem or change in their behavior. It can be hard to approach your kid about these concerns, and sometimes, they don't want to talk about it. Expressive Arts therapy can be a powerful way to feel safe and to open up. I work with adults too! I believe therapy should be collaborative and non-authoritative. We will work together as allies, mutually invested in your growth. My approach is different.

I am comfortable holding space for those who are grieving or processing traumatic events and experiences.

I draw from a variety of therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative, Brief Solution Focused, and Play Therapy to assist you, or your child, in sharing your story, resolve conflicts and accomplishing peaceful change. It is my belief that problems are often developed and sustained through well-established habits of thinking and behavior. I provide a safe setting, and have a respectful approach, to addressing problems. I work in partnership with you utilizing your strengths and resources to create positive change!

I align with children's natural languages by using play therapy & art therapy modalities.
My practice is currently FULL. It takes courage to seek help...for yourself or for your child/teen. I recognize how influential parents are when it comes to the emotional lives of their kids. Therefore my approach often includes some work with you to help you understand your child/teen's behaviors and to identify the implicit emotional needs in what you may be seeing. Often these externalized behaviors require some attuned response from you which can assist your child to feel and function better, and make important adaptations to family/life situations.

I use an integrative approach combining Attachment and Somatic-based EMDR with Play Therapy and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy with additional experiential techniques.
I enjoy working with motivated individuals, age 2+, and families seeking to improve an area of their life, increase life functioning or move past an obstacle holding them back. My ideal client is motivated for change, understands EMDR treatment is goal-oriented and short-term, rather than a life-long process.

I work primarily with couples experiencing relationship and sexual issues, and child non-directive play therapy .
Each one of us possesses problem-solving strengths. In times of transition and stress, these strengths can seem dormant. Therapy can uncover and further develop a personal resiliency. Having someone there to guide us on our path, through the brambles of life can be helpful. I believe therapy is a collaborative endeavor and my goal is to meet you where you are, with your life experience, self-awareness and intention.

Play is how they connect and they want their grown-up to hear them.
Sorry, I am not accepting new clients until 2023. I specialize in and only work with children 5 years and younger and their parent or caregivers. You might be a good fit for Child Parent Psychotherapy if your infant through 5 year old has witnessed domestic violence, experienced trauma, or if you just find yourself having difficulty connecting and you want to work to connect and build your relationship through play and positive connection. If you find that your child's behavior or emotions are too big for them and you to handle, you feel lost as a parent and you want to increase positive, playful connection - I can help!

In working with children, I use play to enhance the processing of their inner experiences and feelings.
I have seen the growth and healing that can happen when you experience understanding and acceptance in a safe and compassionate environment. Whether you are coming into therapy to address current stressors in your life or are ready to work through past trauma, I will provide you with a supportive environment to begin that process. Together we will build awareness of your core beliefs, identify your patterns of interacting with the world, and uncover your inner strengths. Through learning the impact of traumatic experiences on the brain and nervous system, we can learn to regulate our emotions and increase safety in the body.

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.

My work with clients often includes art projects, crafts, play , and games.
I delight in working with children and families as a therapist. Kids are so wonderful and I love supporting them and their relationship with their parents. This includes helping clients gain coping skills to face this world today, skills to manage anxiety, depression, to verbally express needs, and to manage behaviors. This includes supporting parents through family therapy, working on parenting strategies, and including parents in the therapy process as their child develops skills. I enjoy seeing connection and family growth in those I work with.

Play Therapy and Child Parent Relationship Therapy for children/families.
CURRENT OPENING Life is a journey! Do you feel overwhelmed, distressed, disconnected or lost, is your life hard to navigate. I believe that compassionate, reflective therapy can help restore vitality and renew hope. Individuals, couples, children/families, experience emotional struggles and challenging behaviors because of the impact of a variety of past and present variables, not because of weakness. Symptoms/Behaviors are simply indicators of need, and actually illuminate innate strength that guides healing. I'mabout collaborating with you to build strengths, explore barriers to enjoyment of life, and create a joyful resilience.

Any of us, from adults to very young children, can experience life challenges that require the caring support of other people. Sometimes we need help to navigate, heal, and move forward in our lives toward better health and wholeness. When the emotional support of friends and family is not enough, establishing a safe, collaborative relationship with a psychotherapist can be a valuable resource.

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.
