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.

By living meaningfully in the present you can learn to break free from past experiences, trauma, and concerns for the future. Living with intention encourages you to act with purpose and passion for your own benefit and the benefit of society. Trauma, stress, fear, depression, and anxiety can be debilitating. If you are reading this you have recognized that either you or someone you care about may need help navigating the unprecedented life events. As your counselor, I want to help you explore who you are, find what is meaningful to you, and assist you in learning the tools that will help you live life to the fullest.

I provide individual counseling, play therapy , and child-parent relationship therapy.
You might be feeling more sad, angry, worried, or lonely than usual. Juggling work, family and school might have you doubting yourself, struggling to connect and feel loved in relationships, or feeling dissatisfied with your career. If you are Black, Indigenous, a person of color, queer, trans, gender expansive, or live with a disability, you may be tired of being strong. You may notice certain spaces where you don’t feel comfortable being your full self. In therapy you can feel understood, valued, and empowered to heal and grow. In therapy you can explore and celebrate your culture, your wisdom, your strengths, and your identities.

Hello! I help clients take a deeper look at how the body and nervous system respond to stress, how maladaptive patterns develop in their lives, and how this prevents them from accessing joy. If you feel overwhelmed with family problems, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, or for other reasons, you deserve time for self care to learn to live your best life and be your best self! My goal is to help you find that. Along with the horses, alpacas, the lovely barn cat, and a gorgeous view of the valley, I hope to help you connect to yourself deeply, and love yourself, so that you can deeply connect to others and find contentment

Practice Accepting New Clients! I believe that everyone can change and grow at any time in their lives. I don't believe that there is a limit to human capacity. A person's mental health and many common mental disorders are shaped by various social, economic, and physical environments operating at different stages of life. Good mental health is integral to human health and well-being. Risk factors for many common mental disorders are heavily associated with social inequalities. I don't discriminate against anyone, and I am fluent in American Sign Language (ASL).

You are searching these pages for help, for clarity, for healing. I've been helping adults and children understand themselves and their relationships for over25 years. You are not just an individual with a problem; you are a person in context to your past, your future and your present. My approach in therapy involves seeing us in the context of relationships with ourselves and others. As we come to understand who we are in those relationships we have opportunities for healing, for reconciliation, for growth.

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 Hillsboro or for a Hillsboro 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.
