About

I value deep and enduring emotional connections between people, while celebrating their uniqueness and personal strenghts. Practicing attachment parenting with my own children inspired me to guide the parents that I work with through playful, fun, and nurturing activities to attune to their children's needs, to assist their children become more emotionally regulated, and to create safety within the relationship. Relating with our children in that way helps them feel worthy of love and belonging, safe and secured.
I am one of the few therapists in Las Vegas that is trained in Theraplay. This is a family therapy approach that helps parents including those parents with children on the AUTISM spectrum respond appopriately to their child's needs through the use of nurturing activities, gentle rhytm, touch, eye contact, signing.
I also work with adults who might feel overwhelmed with sadness after losing a loved one or traumatized by a particular event. I have a good understanding of what it is like to go through life changing events. I am also trained to assist you in better handling life trauma, along with the shame, guilt, anger, anxiety, depression, and hopelessness.
