Although it's true that children are resilient, there are times when children and their families need focused support and therapy in order to move forward and reach emotional health and balance. I am a Clinical Psychologist and Registered Play Therapist who uses cognitive-behavioral, play therapy, animal-assisted therapy, art therapy, and mindfulness techniques to help clients achieve better mental health. Having been licensed for sixteen years, I have worked extensively with children who present with anxiety, depression, a history of trauma including post-traumatic stress disorder, attention deficit, obsessive-compulsive disorder, autism, grief issues, and behavioral concerns.
During treatment, the goal is to help clients improve their communication skills, identify stressors, increase their self-confidence, make healthier life choices, and improve their interpersonal relationships. Play therapy is very effective for helping clients reach these goals.
I have a strong background in Attachment theory and have worked with numerous families to help resolve parent-child relational issues or concerns. I have particular expertise in working with adoptive families.
