I am a Registered Play Therapist working with children who are hard to reach either because they are angry, anxious, or depressed. Children don't express themselves the same way that adults do, rather, they express themselves more naturally through play. Play is a child's natural way of relieving stress and play therapy is the best practice for working with children. Using Play Therapy most children are able to work through issues in a much shorter amount of time. For more information Call today (910) 407-0052 and check us out at www.AtlasChildCounseling.com

So many of my clients come in feeling like something is wrong with them. They are relieved to know that their feelings are normal. My clients come to me because they just want to feel better. They want to be less depressed, less anxious, better parents, more confident, and have healthier relationships. I work with my clients as they learn new ways of coping and living life that free them from negative thoughts, behaviors and patterns of emotional reactivity.

*Not currently accepting new patients, thank you* My background is in working with children and teens for the past ten years. However, I have found over the last few years that I love working with adults as well! My ideal client is one that seeks to have an understanding of self and learn new ways to adapt to the world given whatever barrier may currently be in place. I find that many clients enjoy the safe, nonjudgmental environment that I provide. While I do provide insights as they come up and coping skills, I do not tell clients "what to do."

Does your teen or young adult take an excessive amount of time to complete a task cause it's not “perfect”😟 Have they seemed unwilling or uninterested in things that used to make them happy 😫 Would you call your teen or young adult a perfectionist? This unrealistic expectation and need for approval can make your child feel like they are living in a prison sometimes. Perfectionism and this constant need to control everything can become paralyzing, often leading into self-destructive behaviors such as binge eating, self-harming, emotional eating, anxiety, anger outbursts, and depression. It doesn’t have to be this way 😌

I believe therapy is a way to enrich life and develop a secure connection in a space free of judgement and met with compassion. I strive to provide lasting change from the inside out. I believe in treating the whole person, mind, body, & spirit. I believe it is important to pay attention to emotion, non-verbal communication, somatic expressions and non-conscious processes. Memories play a part in how our brains process and store meaning to life. Misinterpreted meaning becomes internalized and presents unwanted feelings/thoughts/behaviors. As we work together, we process memories leaving those undesired mind/body connections behind.
