As a Registered Play Therapist, I work with children 1 year and older with a variety of presenting concerns: anxiety, ADHD, social difficulties, academic struggles, behavioral concerns, divorce, life transitions, self-esteem, anger, and grief. My passion lies with children and their families who have experienced trauma, abuse or attachment difficulties. Recent brain research has proven that the absence of a secure attachment with a primary caregiver negatively impacts the child's normal developmental process. In order to ensure inner change, my play therapy work often initially focuses on developing a positive, consistent, and nurturing relationship with an attachment figure.

I believe that we all want to feel respected, valued, significant and safe. So much of our pain and confusion comes from our own (often subconscious) attempts to find this sense of security. While these attempts have helped us make it this far, they often prevent us from living the life we truly long for.

Living comes with its fair share of stressors, and yet, your situation is unique to you. Do you need a chance to regroup, sort through ideas, and move through a rough spot? Perhaps you haven't quite felt yourself, and you want to get back to you. Maybe you and someone significant have been experiencing conflict, and you would like a neutral party to help work through the complicated reactions that have resulted and come to a clear resolution. If you find yourself in one of these scenarios, I would gladly offer perspective and a listening ear.
