I love to work with kids and adolescents and their families. I believe people don't have "problems" but rather "challenges" they learn to move through or re-frame. Together we learn new ways of doing things; new ways of looking at things; find a new path of our own choosing that feels better than the one we were on; relate to ourselves and others in a healthier way; learn to smile and laugh more; find the things we are good at doing; make a contribution; stress less; be who we are meant to be; and love who that person is!

I have always loved working with kids and my passion and dream is helping young people achieve their goals. I received my MA in Mental Health Counseling and am credentialed by the International Association for Play Therapy. Using the therapeutic power of play I am able to help kids and their families move forward and find resilience.

My goal as a play therapist is to help kids and their families feel better. I use sound, proven approaches appropriate to their needs. Interventions include art therapy, sand tray, drama, and mindfulness. We increase problem solving and coping skills, emotion identification and regulation, and social skills.
