My experience is in helping families heal after abuse and/or trauma but I enjoy working with a variety of presenting issues.
I find the greatest joy in working with families to repair and build nurturing relationships. Coming from a playful perspective I love to help children and their parents find their self-worth and express their true feelings in ways that they can understand each other. I utilize my training and background in child development studies to help children and parents understand each other in appropriate ways. I keep in mind that each child and family is unique, seeking to understand without judgment.

Life is difficult for all of us at times, and it can be normal to become stuck in survival mode following traumatic events or severe life stressors.

I help individuals come to terms with trauma, manage their thoughts and feelings to create exuberance in their lives.
Sometimes we experience things that are so life changing that we us lose sight of our hopes and dreams. We can be fooled into believing that we will never be okay again. We do not have to be defined by what has happened to us. I believe that no matter what they have been through people have the potential to create for themselves a happy, rich and full life worth living. It is not easy to overcome bad things but it is possible. If you are tired of being limited and ready to make real changes therapy can help you create the life you wish to have.
