Why Play Therapy? This is a frequently asked question. I believe that through play, children express themselves in their own developmentally appropriate way. Through play and other expressive therapies, children can resolve problems, cope with difficult emotions,improve cognitive development and help resolve inner conflicts. Although I work mainly with children, my education and training also allow me the opportunity to work with adults on certain issues.

There are several things in my life which drive me to be a counselor. My own past with it struggles, acceptances, failures, and successes drive me to do what I do. I am able to sit in dark places, empathize with struggle and loneliness, and challenge ways of thinking and behaving from a non-judgmental place. I love the unique position a counselor has to problem solve through the failures, walk the uphill road to recovery, and celebrate the success and growth that comes out of the journey.

Sound familiar? You appear to “have it all together” and fear if anyone knew how hard you were working, how inadequate you felt, or how you truly see yourself, it would all unravel. You're worried one more thing on your plate would send you into a crisis, and you already feel like you're drowning in overwhelming thoughts & feelings. You're creative & resourceful at finding ways to cope with the stressors of life, but these methods ultimately make things worse in the long run.

I offer counseling and dance/movement therapy to help people move through life’s ups and downs. I can help people through normal challenges as well as with diagnosis and treatment of disorders. Additionally, I offer Chattanooga’s first dance/movement therapy private practice. Dance/movement therapy uses body language and creative expression to build connection, awareness and healing. This modality is effective, in part, because: communication is 90% nonverbal; everyone moves in some way; putting things into words is sometimes too difficult; and emotions and struggles often have a physical component.

You are worthy and you are enough. Those seven words can feel like an unreachable mindset, I know. Trauma, abuse, neglect, grief, and the weight of caring for others more than yourself can make that phrase feel hollow. Anxiety, depression, flashbacks, nightmares, and isolation are truly exhausting. If you are reading this, I want you to know you are not alone and you’ve already taken the only step you have to on your own: you’ve done the hard work of reaching out.
