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.

My focus with young children is to build a secure bond with a caregiver. Attachment theory and research has found that the more securely connected we are, the more self confident we are in life. Attachment always asks the question, "Can I depend on you when I need you?" Often circumstances happen so that a child is more anxious and clingy or the opposite avoiding closeness. Theraplay consists of activities consists of activities done between a caregiver and the child so that a secure bond can be built.
Also, children need structure. Love and Logic principles will be taught so that a child can receive consequences for negative behavior.

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.
