Let's face it; sometimes being human can be downright overwhelming. Managing a family and a household on top of navigating work stresses and relationship and interpersonal difficulties, might leave you feeling stretched to your physical and emotional limit. Just when you think you are going to snap, your child begins having emotional or behavioral difficulties that you can’t seem to solve in the ways you have in the past. When we experience difficulties in life, it is often the hardest to ask for help, but sometimes the strongest and most important action is to reach out and request the assistance of others.

Stuck? Lost? Broken? If what you are trying isn’t working I would love to work with you to promote change. I see people ages 3 to 103 for struggles in their family relationships, medical trauma, previous abuse, self harm, behavior difficulties, and whatever else comes up along the way. I’m a registered play therapist with years of experience in trauma of all sorts, including medical trauma. Additionally I focused my research in graduate school on siblings of chronically ill children as they often by necessity have less time with their parents which can have a variety of outcomes similar to chronic trauma.
