One of the most challenging and stressful things we face in life are the emotional and behavioral problems of our children . These difficulties impact not only the success of the child but the overall happiness within our home, our marital relationships and life itself can become wearisome and unmanageable. We may begin to wonder if there is “hope” for improvement or even may feel like “what’s wrong with us.” In the effort to find relief or comfort, we may find ourselves drawn to self-defeating and even destructive behaviors that offer immediate yet temporary relief. There are other options. I offer just this to my clients.

“Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” -Brené Brown. Seeking help is a humbling and courageous step. I admire the courage it takes to begin this journey and am humbled when either children or adults open their hearts and allow me to support them. I am passionate about helping those who have had traumatic experiences and want to heal. I utilize various therapy techniques in the healing process and have specialized training in Play Therapy, Sandtray, and EMDR.

Have you noticed a change in your child ? Maybe you got a call from your child ’s school or your child isn’t as connected to the family right now? If you are wondering about therapy, email me. I have 20 years of experience with children and I am happy to consult with you via email. To create improvement, we work together as a team. We rely on building from your child ’s strengths and discuss solutions. We separate your child from their behaviors and we work to build skills that promote healthy behaviors. How? Through building bonds and through specific activities, play, and talking.

I am passionate about the needs of families and the impact of mental health on children and adolescents.
Our native language is play. As we grow, we need to a safe space in which we are able to express and process our experiences -- to express ourselves with no judgement, no limitations, and through a modality of mediums. Success and growth can come from experiencing the therapeutic relationship, a supportive environment, and gaining tools necessary for coping with life's challenges, ultimately obtaining an appropriate sense of control over one's self.

Work experience includes community mental health, substance abuse prevention and recovery, employee assistance programs, child welfare and adoption services including adult adoptees search and reunion issues.
Therapy can be a dynamic experience creating hope and energy. Facing challenges and grieving losses we inevitably face is a powerful step in moving toward a more satisfying present. I view therapy as a collaboration with you to create your transformation and growth. Our past experiences shape our view of ourselves and in turn our potential in the future. I hope to assist you to "re-author" the stories you have about yourself not serving a positive purpose and replace them with new stories, skills and a vision that do.

16 years experience working with children , adolescents, and adults.
I value and celebrate individuals who come all walks of life. I believe there are strengths and perspectives to be found in the life experience we face each day. There are many pieces and parts that make us who we are; our life history, our race, gender, gender expression, age, sexual identities, abilities, religious beliefs, and spiritualities. Pieces that are apart of us, but not always in harmony. I believe as we acknowledge, explore and embrace these conflicts, we can find a new meaning to our suffering, new ways of coping, and a new perspective on life.
