I have training in play therapy and strive to create a safe place for children and adolescents to express themselves and their emotions.
Having encountered the healing nature of the therapeutic relationship myself, I am passionate about providing a safe and judgment-free space for processing and identifying areas of growth together. I want to come alongside those searching for relief in whatever struggles they’re facing. I provide a Christian based approach to therapy, and desire to see relationships restored through the power of God’s hope and healing. I am passionate about working with individuals, couples and families in their pursuit of growth and healing.

I utilize CBT, Play Therapy, Shame Resiliency, and EMDR to achieve the goals we have set out together.
*Not currently accepting individual clients group options available*. This is what I promise when you walk into my office you or your child will have a safe place to explore their feelings and emotions without judgment, and through their work with me, they will walk away with a better understanding of themselves. I believe that they really do have the answers and know how best to make the necessary changes in their lives. Sometimes, though, those answers are trapped and children can feel that they are unheard which can lead to behavioral problems and isolation.

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 Scottsdale or for a Scottsdale 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.
