Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

I have been working extensively with young children in a variety of environments for the past several years. Young children usually are not going to sit down with a therapist and talk about their feelings and explore meaning. Instead, they express themselves through play. If play is a child's language, then toys are their words. With this in mind, I usually begin by working with what's known as a child-centered approach, bringing in more directive techniques when necessary. I am excited to have a well-equipped playroom at my place of practice and would love to use it to help your child through whatever life has thrown at them.

I work with parents and children to improve sleep problems, behavioral issues, and to deal with transitions and trauma. I believe that any time a child is involved, it is vital that the parent be a part of the counseling process. For behavior problems, my treatment is based on the Parent-Child Interaction Model, and involves educating and training parents to reward and discipline for effectively, as well as teaching the child about the rewards and consequences for certain behaviors.

Most of my professional experience has been with children, from age 5 and up. I enjoy helping children grow through their presenting issues. I include parents in the counseling process on a regular basis, and feel strongly that they should be a part. Parents shape the lives of children, and can be their best cheerleaders in life. Children are usually very receptive to counseling at my office.
