I am trained in directive (theraplay) and non-directive play therapy, and EMDR with children. My approach to counseling and helping children is obtain a thorough history and list of concerns from both parents, and assess the child through their play and interaction with me. I love the energy and ability of children to heal, even without words. I am also trained in Trust Based Relational Intervention for kiddos with attachment issues.

It can be very difficult as a parent to address all of your child's needs and issues. As a play therapist I have specialized training in utilizing an effective approach to help your child achieve healing and the family to restore relationships. Children often can suffer from the same issues that we can have as adults but express it in different ways. This is often misunderstood and requires a unique approach with parents to help find the ways to manage behaviors and explore problems within a child's life. My experience includes counseling children with an abuse or trauma history, ADHD, and Autism.

As an art therapist, I use creative interventions for children and teens to express themselves. I spent many years working with children and teens in inpatient psychiatric and residential facilities. When children feel "heard," they can begin the process of healing from issues that might be plaguing them. As a marriage and family therapist, my goal is to offer tools for families to open up channels of communication with one another,and create environments in which each family member can thrive. As a parent of young children and teenagers, my combination of real world experience and years of working with children in a therapeutic setting has prepared me for this work in private practice.

Through the technology and media advancements today our children are experiencing things so much earlier than we did as kids. This can leave children trying to make meaning out of life events and situations that we as adults struggle with. I have found that through play and art therapy we can create a space for them to process these thoughts, feelings and beliefs. The goal is to help them give voice to what they are experiencing while finding resources to help them get through it in a healthy manner.

As a Marriage and family therapist, I have been trained to work with the whole family. Young children require a unique therapist. A therapist who is willing to get down on their level, literally and see them. Young children need space and opportunity to build trust so they feel comfortable allowing you into their hurt and pain. I am also trained in EMDR Therapy which can be an incredible resource with children.

I enjoy working with Children 12 years and older. Pre-teens and teenagers are going through so much and are living in a world that they receive so many messages by the media! It is hard to make good decisions with the onslaught of messages they are bombarded with. Counseling can help a young child to feel safe enough to open up and begin to address 'scary things' in their lives. It would be an honor for me to work with your child.

Working with young children in a therapeutic setting can be challenging and also extremely rewarding. Children love to play and through play they will express themselves in ways they may not be able to verbalize. Emotions are complex for adults and confusing for young children. They have not yet learned how to get those emotions out in a healthy way. I can provide sand tray and play therapy for children to help them articulate what they can not.
