Registered Psychotherapist

I use non-directive, directive and sand play therapy when working with children. Given that younger children's brains are in a process of development and many of the more complex cognitive skills don't develop until later, play is the most effect method of learning to solve problems and process emotions or issues. As a school counselor I worked with families, teachers and children. I have trained as a synergistic play therapist, a person centered play therapist and in sand play.

I love working with kids. I currently work as a Experiential Play Therapist (part-time) for a safe house in the Metro-Denver area.

I am an advocate for children and their protection. All the children I work with receive the upmost care and education I can offer. Through a therapeutic relationship and safe environment your children can begin a process of healing and development that will set them on a path early in life towards freedom and significance.

Adolescents can be a beautiful time in life, but for some it can be terrifying. Navigating through life as we try to find who we are and where we belong can be a daunting task. Support and guidance is always necessary through this time, but also learning through our experiences is vital to development as well. The pressures and expectations that adolescents carry around with them is a huge weight. Having a supportive and caring adult to walk them through this time in their life can be vital to get through this stage in life and thrive.
