Sometimes parenting can be fraught with challenges, and knowing how best to help your child can be confusing. Whether it's behavior problems, anxiety, depression, educational issues, or chronic illness; these issues do have solutions. The guidance you receive should be from someone with the proper training, who utilizes research-based strategies, and resists the urge to rely solely on their "gut" in a treatment setting. This is the current standard in this modern age of psychological care, and combined with the right interpersonal fit, you and your child 's efforts in treatment will be more likely to result in lasting change.

My passion is bringing hope and healing to individuals who have experienced a traumatic or stressful event or situation.

I help my clients, who include children , adults, couples, and families, find hope and gain healthy perceptions of themselves. I enable clients to strengthen their relationships, so they can recognize themselves as the safe confident and complete individuals they are.

Whether an adult or child my approach is fluid and trauma based.
Let me help you explore and heal experiences that are disrupting functioning in your daily life now. Working with kids in the foster care system I saw a continual theme. Their symptoms were about what had happened to them instead of their diagnosis. This drove me to explore trauma informed modalities and provide treatment for all ages who have experienced trauma. Exploring what happened as a reason behind actions and responses. I treat all ages but I have a dedicated play therapy space for children & teens and use an attachment focused lens. Clients often have the solution that works for them but just needs guidance to access it.

I am all about play therapy! It's surprising how fast children can be empowered through different play methods to feel confident managing problems, emotions and behavior. When children use their natural ability to play to access their inner world, they gain confidence and skills they didn't have before. I also work with teens, which includes talk therapy and expressive forms of therapy depending on needs.

I would love to help you on your path as you seek to find healing, feel hope, learn more about yourself, repair relationships, or just find more happiness and satisfaction in your life. Many problems that people face are situations that they feel are outside of their control. These situations can cause deep despair and hopelessness.

Child Therapists

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
