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.

I started Aptitude Behavioral Services, LLC to service school-age children in the East TN area. I love working with children through pre-teen ages and have also worked with a few higher-functioning teenagers. My typical day involves working with families that face challenges with behavior and working directly with children to decrease these behaviors while building skill deficits. I enjoy including family in my sessions and want to empower caregivers and family members so that they are equipped to handle behavioral challenges.

Welcome! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who specializes in working with young children, teenagers, and families. Children and teenagers often express themselves through behavior rather than words, and I use a variety of creative, play, and activity-based techniques to connect with my clients throughout the counseling process. I believe that counseling should be individualized for each person and will tailor interventions based on individual interests and strengths. My goal is help children and families learn more effective ways to manage difficult feelings, improve communication, and create stronger bonds.

I enjoy working with individuals across the life span. I especially have a passion for working with families of all types. I have a credential as a Registered Play Therapist and advanced training in Emotion Focused Couple Therapy. What that means is that I tend to work from Attachment Theory. I believe that all individuals were meant to be attached to people in our lives and sometimes things happen that hurt that attachment. With that being said, when a client works consistently with a therapist, even severe problems can either totally resolve itself or become more manageable.
