Treatment modalities include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Analytical Psychotherapy, Dream Therapy, Mindfulness/meditation practice, Sand Play , HMR, and EMDR.
I offer a safe, supportive environment and have found empathy, understanding and humor are important in building a therapeutic alliance. My abilities are well suited to people with a history of trauma and who are intuitive and creative. Whether you're looking for short term therapy or a deeper process, my skill level applies to both. Each person is unique and I anticipate and enjoy building a relationship that assumes collaboration. I then work with them toward activating their own healing potential, no matter the age. I work well with individuals who have had treatment failures in the past.

It's time to change but you’re not sure where to start. Dealing with the mood swings, sadness, and fear have become overwhelming but it’s hard to ask for help. Maybe you or someone in your family has experienced abuse or trauma and is scared or embarrassed to talk about it. It feels like you’ve tried everything to help yourself, teen, or child and you’re worried the situation will get worse. The emotional roller coaster needs to stop but you don’t know where the controls are anymore. By reading this, you are already starting a path to change. There is no shame is asking for help.

I have found that humor, empathy and understanding, for oneself and others, are key elements in building relationships with people. These qualities are the foundation of all good psychotherapy. I am comfortable working with people from varying spiritual traditions. My abilities are well suited to people who are emotionally sensitive or traumatized. I have worked well with individuals who have had treatment failures in the past, people who are creative, gifted individuals, adolescents and children. Play therapy is effective with children who have cognitive delays.

I am trained in a variety of treatment models but the heart of my work is play -based, which helps when kids don't want to talk.
As parents, we've all had those "WTF" moments. Maybe your child is acting out or their mood seems to have more ups and downs than a rollercoaster. Sure, it comes with the territory of raising kids, but when they start to happen more often, we might feel confused, frustrated, or worried. That's where therapy for your child or teen can help! You want a therapist that can connect with your child and help them function and feel better. You want a therapist that will listen and see you for who you are: a caring and loving parent that is trying their best. You want a therapist that can help your family feel less stressed and overwhelmed.

My training and background includes DBT, play -therapy, CBT, and chronic medical conditions to name a few.
I love working with couples, children, adolescents, individuals, and families in every stage of their lives. Couples come to get un-stuck in a negative pattern of communication and deepen their love for and attachment to one another. Adolescents weighed down by the challenges they face see me to work through anxiety and depression. Parents who have younger children struggling with bullying or needing assistance in improving executive functioning and impulse control see me. Adults with trauma, depression, anxiety, sleep issues, and work stressors see me to live a happier, healthier life.

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 Oshkosh or for an Oshkosh 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.
