I have worked with children and families for over thirty years using creative strategies to encourage children to process feelings. My first degree is child development and I have special training in trauma, attachment and ADHD. I work collaboratively with both parents, teachers and physicians. My home like office provides a supportive atmosphere for both parents and children. Younger children find play therapy helpful, and older children may use art therapy. Codee my Jack Russel Terrier is a lively teacher for children of ADHD. ADHD assessments and school consultation available. Childhood is too short to be unhappy.

During the summer months I work with horses with children on issues of fear, anxiety, ADHD, focusing, self confidence and attachment. Therapy does not have to boring to be affective. Most insurances accepted. Log on to therapyappointment.com and scroll down to my name for registering online.

I practice at my Burnsville location two days a week and New Prague two days.
