I make counseling convenient by offering online sessions, including online play therapy for ages seven and up using Minecraft.
Does your inner-critic scream when you make a mistake? Do people seem to like you more than you like yourself? Maybe you just feel lost, wanting things to be different even though you don't know exactly what that means. That’s okay. Life can be challenging, but challenging is not impossible. Sometimes, we just need some support. I would like to offer you my support in a space where you can feel free to be who you are, free from the pressure of who you're supposed to be, and free to discover what's important to you. Let's work together to identify the changes you want to make in life so you can work on making them.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Registered Play Therapist who uses play and easy to understand methods with children, teens and parents.
You keep thinking that this is just a stage or a passing behavior your child is going through. You stay up late searching online for books, articles, or blog posts looking for something new to try because nothing you do is working to help your child. The meltdowns, temper tantrums, yelling and the power struggles in your home are not how you pictured family life. It's too much noise, too much stress and the chaos is draining your energy. This is not the adventure you signed up for or learned about in Parenting 101. It's time for change.

I believe that through play , insatiable curiosity, self-awareness, and creativity, you can be thriving instead of just surviving in this life, regardless of your age or circumstances! I have worked through various mental health concerns, such as behavior concerns, self-esteem issues, identity development, divorce adjustment, depression, anxiety, and more.
Your child is having a harder time than you expected, out of control and unable to be consoled. Your teenager seems to be having endless mood swings, struggles with anxiety and depressive symptoms, and you no longer recognize the child you knew so well. You aren't sure what to do anymore or how to help. Perhaps you, an adult, are overwhelmed and lost in how to navigate past trauma, hurting relationships, and/or finding your purpose. Mental health is a struggle across the life span and I am here to help!

Do you notice your child often cries when you leave the room? Does your child struggle to complete developmentally appropriate tasks independently? Do you feel overwhelmed and stressed out with how to manage your anxious child? I specialize in working with children that struggle to form secure attachments which often result in overly emotional episodes or withdrawn and isolated behavior. My goal in therapy is to use my training in child centered play therapy and trust-based relational intervention to help bring understanding to the child-parent relationship and help build stronger connections that will ripple to other areas of life.

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.
