I work with children and adolescents struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma, grief and loss, family changes, challenging peer relationships and the behaviors that can result from these issues. I have training and experience using Play Therapy and Sandplay, which employ children's natural way of communicating and learning, as well as other therapeutic modalities as appropriate to each individual. My approach is client centered and often non-directive, believing that when children experience emotional safety in a non-judgmental relationship, their inner wisdom naturally emerges to guide their learning, healing and growth.

I am a trauma and attachment-focused therapist with experience treating people of all ages - from Play Therapy with toddlers and children, to Art Therapy with teens and Narrative and Family Systems Therapy with adults, I work to find your best way of connecting so that the real you can blossom and shine!.
We are accepting new patients! Which is amazing in this trying time we're collectively living in, where mental health issues have sky rocketed due the pandemic, social isolation, education gaps for our children, questions about our desired work/life balance and deeply buried past traumas. Even before the pandemic, did you often feel something wasn't quite right, that you were sweeping feelings under the rug that you just didn't have time to deal with - but knew you would have to face soon because they are deeply affecting you? Perhaps now is the time to put yourself first and explore what is holding you back.

My joy as a therapist comes from working with kids, teens, and young adults (ages 5-25) who struggle to manage their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Kids, just like adults struggle to manage their emotions, however, unlike adults, they don’t quite have the developmental skills yet to communicate what they are experiencing. I utilize multiple therapeutic approaches to creatively approach each client and session based on the needs presented. I especially enjoy incorporating art and play into my sessions, which helps build on the normal communicative processes of kids that are not limited by traditional talk therapy.

In sessions, you will have the opportunity to see the world through your child’s eyes as you engage in play together.
Are you wanting to find joy and ease in your parenting, but instead encountering frustration? If your child joined your family through adoption or has a trauma history, challenging moments can sometimes crowd out the joy. Maybe you find yourself yelling or losing your patience more than you would like. Maybe you’d like to get to the roots of your child’s baffling behaviors, but you don’t know where to start. Together, we can shift your perspective and see your child through a new lens. Underneath the big behaviors is your child's true self, a struggling child who wants to feel regulated, connected, and safe.

Do you find yourself feeling guilty or resentful in relationships? If this sounds like you; I can help. I am honored to do this work & it is a privilege to work alongside clients as you learn to accept your own path, while learning how to build a life of peace & authenticity.

My client profile consists of 1/3 children/adolescents, 1/3 trauma focused therapy due to sexual assault and/or sexual addiction impact, and 1/3 females over 40 who would like to explore making changes in life. I enjoy the diversity of my practice as all the above mentioned areas enable me to work with both childhood disorders and relational challenges into adulthood. My focus on sexual addiction/trauma and family of origin issues is to provide supportive and therapeutic space for partners and children/teens who have been impacted by someone who has either a confirmed or suspected sexual addiction.

People come to RCC to improve their mental health, increase life satisfaction, and gain self-awareness. The human experience is a complicated one and most of us, at one time or another have found ourselves overwhelmed. When we respond to life's struggles in ways less than successful, we may experience depression, anxiety, or other symptoms. Psychotherapy along with medication is an effective treatment for the relief of these and many other psychological symptoms.

I work with adolescents and adults with anxiety, depression, grief, chronic pain, issues of personal identity (race/gender/sexuality orientation), and life transitions (relational/ academic/professional). Navigating into the depths of who we are reveals we are so much more than what we sense at the surface. Having support on our journey can allow us to develop tolerance for our full range of emotions, gain awareness of what we feel in our bodies, discover new insights into past events, expand our ability to discuss fears, increase empathy for ourselves, experience more meaningful relationships.

Play Therapy
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counseling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.

If you're looking for play therapy in Renton or for a Renton play therapist, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists and play counselors.
