As a passionate and empathetic mental health professional, I seek to provide creative, exploratory therapeutic practices to help children flourish. I hold space for children to think, feel, explore, and make sense of their innermost worlds. I seek to enhance their brain/body connections to aid in healthy, autonomous development while healing from past traumatic experiences. My approach is very playful, child-directed, and trauma-informed. I am simply an instrument to help children unlock their unique gifts and potentials. Together, we will work towards integration of mind, body, and spirit.

As Mr. Rogers said, “Play is really the work of childhood." We all go through hard times where we need a little help, but when children need help they don’t always tell us with words. Instead they show us, with behavior, physical symptoms, anxiety, or struggling in school. When they do, I use play to identify the reasons for children’s symptoms and teach healthier ways to get their needs met. Therapy should be safe and nonjudgmental, so the Sanctuary model of trauma-informed care is at the heart of that. It helps support parents in understanding their children, by asking what happened to them rather than what is wrong with them.

*not currently accepting new clients* Welcome!! Make yourself comfortable because the time you spend in the office belongs to YOU! If you want to kick off your shoes, go ahead! Lie on the couch? SURE! Many people think therapy is scary and they assume they will spend their time talking to someone who writes notes and repeats, "how do you feel about that?" Although, I cannot promise I will not say that, I can promise that we will have relaxed conversations with whatever you want to talk about being our focus. We will laugh, cry and, maybe even throw things.

People often seek therapy in times of crisis, when feeling stuck or overwhelmed by the impact of things outside of their control. Psychotherapy is an opportunity to look at how early life experiences and significant events influence current patterns in relating to others and the environment. Through these observations, new options in how to meet life’s obstacles and nurture one’s authentic self can be discovered. This work is done using a non-pathologizing approach and with sensitive consideration to systemic oppression and power structures that limit and/or enhance access to resources needed to feel safe and emotionally well.

Sandplay Therapists
Sandplay therapy in Pittsburgh establishes a safe and protected space, where the complexities of the client's inner world can be explored. Often young children, clients place miniature figurines in a small sandbox to express confusing feelings and inner experiences. This creates a visual representation of the client's thoughts and feelings and can reveal unconscious concerns that are inaccessible. The therapist does not interpret, interfere with, or direct the client's sand play but maintains an attitude of receptivity and acceptance, so the client can bring unconscious material into consciousness without censure. If you're looking for a Pittsburgh sandplay Therapist, or sand play Therapists for sand therapy.
