I believe in creating an environment which serves as a ‘soft place to land’ for my clients. When children are challenged, the entire family is challenged. By creating a positive environment where children feel accepted, valued, and safe, they are able to make sense of their world by expressing themselves in a way that feels natural to them. Children do not always have words to communicate their struggles and can become overwhelmed by big emotions. As a Registered Play Therapist, I strive to give voice to these challenges and support caregivers in navigating the sometimes difficult and very important job of parenting.

As a former teacher and school counselor, my focus is on helping children and adolescents navigate the sometimes difficult and painful challenges they face. Childhood issues such as trauma, divorce, loss, anxiety, and behavioral concerns are just a handful of tough issues our children encounter. To help them find their voices and work through struggles, talk, play and expressive arts therapy are utilized in counseling sessions.

Having two children of my own, I know how hard it is to see your kid struggle and not know where to turn.
Hi! Whether this is your first attempt or your last effort to find help, I am happy you’re here. Having worked in the school setting the last 10 years, I know that times are really tough for our kids. As parents, we may not know how to handle the things our kids go through, or even understand. I want to help by providing a safe and nurturing environment for children and youth to process their emotions and teach them healthy coping skills to get them through life’s difficult times.

Choosing psychotherapy is a positive life changing decision for yourself and your family. My practice focuses on the treatment of children, adolescents, adults, and families in a warm caring private office setting. A large part of my practice is children and adolescents. I love working with them and have many years of training in play therapy. Some of the most frequent problems addressed are behavioral, ADHD, abuse, grief and loss and divorce issues. I also see a lot of women in my practice and address women's issues. Many women have difficulty coping with relationship problems, depression, anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, grief and loss and divorce.

I enjoy walking with individuals of all ages toward their goal of a healthy self and believe that even children as young as 3 can benefit from a safe place to process their worlds.
Life is often difficult and unexpected. Relationship issues, depression, anxiety, and all sorts of other stressful situations can distract and disorient us from the healthy, joyful, and full lives we desire. Being with clients of all ages through seasons of difficulty, major life changes, depression, anxiety, and stress is one of my greatest honors. Sometimes, you need an unbiased person in your life to offer a safe place to process and equip you with tools to help ease your stressors. You want tools to feel better and make sense of what is going on. I want to help provide that.

Anxiety, depression, and relationship issues take a toll on everyday life. They can lead to counter-productive coping strategies such as substance use (i.e., alcohol) and may even further complicate your interactions with others. While these concerns have become all too familiar in our society, the experience is uniquely personal. Symptoms vary widely from persistent stress and worry, mindless habits (i.e., endlessly scrolling the internet), trouble sleeping, lack of motivation, irritability, fatigue, and loss of interest. Fortunately, there is hope as these types of issues are treatable—change is possible.

There is always hope. Why we feel the way we do, how we seem to always get stuck or how we can't seem to navigate through challenging life events are questions that, with help, we can answer. When life presents these concerns, we're often left experiencing feelings and thoughts we can no longer manage on our own, and we may also feel disconnected from ourselves, others and our world. Working together, we can understand how your thoughts and past experiences influence the way you perceive and interact with the world around you, today.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Heath, TX provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Heath build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
