I support children with or without special needs and their parents to improve skills and communication in a play -based behavioral approach.
You look around and ask yourself “Is this really my life right now?” Some days are okay, some are uncomfortable, and others are intolerable. In the tough moments, the things you've tried before don't seem to work. Treading water was fine for a while, but you’re ready to swim. Maybe someone you cared about died. Maybe that inner critic voice is louder or more persistent than it has been before. Maybe your child’s thoughts and feelings are too big for them to handle.

I specialize in child-centered play therapy and expressive arts therapy.
I have devoted my life to working with children and adolescents. My experiences as a mother, K-12 teacher, elementary school counselor, school psychologist, and therapist have prepared me to work with youth who demonstrate a range of problems at school, home, and play . My clients are often depressed, have severe behavioral problems, have trouble making friends, demonstrate symptoms of anxiety, or have been victims of abuse or trauma. I believe all clients have within themselves the capacity for growth and positive change, provided the proper conditions in an environment of unconditional acceptance and self-worth.

First of all, there is nothing wrong with you, okay? You are inherently whole and worthy just as you are. You are so much more than what has happened to you or what you are struggling with right now. Even if it feels like that’s all you can think about, there are time-tested tools we can use to get you or your child back to living the life you want to live. I am passionate about ending the cycle of generational anxiety and trauma by guiding parents through the landmines of their past and supporting children and families to become more connected and more present with each other. I would love to work with you if…

I am sorry but I am not currently taking new client appointments. I encourage you to take a moment to think about what you are looking for and what you need. Maybe you know what needs to change or have no idea. My hope would be to help you figure that out. That might mean I work with you, your family or children.

I am particularly skilled working alongside pre-adolescents, adolescent, young adult females, and parents of teens, who feel stuck and in the trenches of family dynamics, significant relationships, life circumstances, and/or mental health conditions. Your teen may be desperately trying to find an outlet to channel their feelings. Are they overachievers pouring all their energy into school or sports? Does your teen feel lost, anxious, confused, or indecisive? Perhaps they bottle their anger, cut, or show you their rebellious side.

Finding a space to feel safe, heard, and valued can be extremely difficult. It's even harder to find this space, when we're feeling overwhelmed by life. Over the past 11 years, I have learned that this essential piece- developing trust and safety with my clients- is the basis for healing and wholeness. I truly strive to put my clients and their needs first. If you're struggling with mental health challenges as a result of trauma or significant life stress, I would love to talk more with you about how we might work together to begin finding the peace or healing that you're seeking.

As an adult, taking that first step towards healing can be difficult, anxiety producing, and scary. This is no different for children. Children experience those same emotions and stress but may struggle to express them in a healthy manner. Reaching out to someone you can trust can help your child begin to find their direction in an ever-changing society. Finding a judgement free place where life's challenges can be addressed is difficult, but I can offer that space in a comfortable atmosphere with years of experience.

Play Therapy
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counseling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.
