Each child has unique life experiences and circumstances, which is why I use an integrative approach to play therapy with every child.
I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults in a variety of practice settings over the past 20 years. My primary area of interest and training is working with children under the age of 10 dealing with issues of anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse, autism, developmental delay, divorce, grief, medical issues, behavioral problems, and more. I believe children have limitless potential for growth and they have an innate capacity for resiliency. I also believe that parents and primary caregivers play a critical role in a child's recovery and a joint approach to working with children is essential to healing.

I have been fortunate to work with many unique children and adolescents, including many on the autistic spectrum and those with depression and/or anxiety.
Young people present unique challenges, but also unique opportunities. After almost 30 years experience working with this population, there aren't many situations I haven't encountered. There is always reason for hope. What your therapist expects influences the outcomes. As a behavioral optimist, I approach clients I work with believing that no one wants to be miserable. We all want to reach our potential, as children, adolescents, parents, families, members of a community. Every living, breathing person, whatever their age, race, gender, sexual orientation, or place in life, is capable of change. That is a firm belief of mine.

I have been working with children and teens for many years as a former teacher.
I believe one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your OWN story! You deserve to live a life that leaves you excited to wake up every morning. You want to connect with someone who is real and can empathize with your experience. I am as real as they get! The first step, making a call to a therapist, can be the most difficult step of the entire process. Take a moment and a few deep breaths and call to see how I can help. Life is too short to be weighed down with stress, anxiety, or trauma from past experiences. You deserve to be free of emotional worries and able to create a life worth living.
