My practice is shaped by my passion for helping children, and in the strong belief in the healing powers of play .
I specialize in providing counseling services to children aged 3-12 & their families. Childhood is an extraordinary time of growth and change, and often it can be hard to know when extra support may be needed. Many times, the first step is in supporting parents in understanding the current challenge. I strive to witness each child/family uniquely while building a safe therapeutic relationship. My approach to therapy is warm, creative, and playful. I view caregivers as an important part of the treatment process and carve out space to meet with them routinely.

I use play therapy with children as children often not good at expressing their thoughts and feelings verbally; yet play therapy would be a helpful way to understand and work with them on their troubling thoughts and emotions.
Life is full of big and small challenges, sometimes we handle it alright, sometimes we don't know what to do and wish there is extra help. I partner with children and families who are struggling on the rocking boat to find peace and harmony in their lives.

Raising children is not always easy, especially during a pandemic. With more of us at home for work or school the usual family stresses can be amplified. Children process the stress of these changes in a variety of ways. Working with a therapist who specializes in play therapy , a developmentally appropriate method of providing mental health support to children, can lay the ground work for your child's future success and well being.

I use creative approaches including art, music, play , sand, creative writing and movement with a cognitive-behavioral lens to teach healthy coping skills and encourage self-awareness and self-expression.
My desire is to create a safe place for adolescents and young adults to express themselves and work through the challenges of life. Growing up brings many natural transitions that can be challenging at times. With additional life stressors, life can feel overwhelming. Problems at school, low self-esteem, family conflict, past traumas, loss/grief, and other issues can create strong feelings that get in the way of normal functioning. I believe every person has a story of resilience and my role is to help integrate past experiences, cope with present hardships and create hope for the future.

In my work with kids, through the use of therapeutic play , I seek to speak the “language of the child” and enter into that world while teaming with parents to facilitate and deepen attachment, understanding, and joy.
Our stories contain places of both profound beauty and deep pain. Maybe you're feeling stuck in the places of pain. Maybe it feels difficult to see any beauty at all, and the hope for things to be different feels fleeting at best. It is my hope that through building a safe trusting relationship, we can work together to bring greater flourishing and holistic healing in your relationship with yourself and with others. I enjoy working with all ages utilizing an attachment theory and family systems theory framework while integrating elements from modalities such as Emotion-Focused Therapy and behavioral therapies such as CBT.

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.
