"When working with children and their families I strive to create a fun and comfortable environment while developing the tools to address the challenges being faced. I believe therapy should be a creative, practical and unique experience based on the strengths of the individual and family. Caregivers and family play an essential role in their child's life and development and are therefore often a regular part of the sessions. When working with children I utilize a variety of different strategies including play and game based interventions such as stories/books, board/card games, crafts, role-play, and sensory activities."

"During the national pandemic, the Governor has issued a "stay home, stay safe" order that allows me to continue to hold private online, video or phone sessions with clients on Doxy.me. After our initial intake over the phone, I will give you an email address that we can safely and securely meet up for an intake and future sessions. The appointment will be very similar to Facetime, Skype or Zoom however, we are using a medical line that is strictly protected and secure. The good news is the Federal Government approved insurance companies paying for online appointments so these will be covered by most insurance companies."
