In our current over-scheduled, over-pressured world, families are confronting problems they have little capacity to do anything about. We can tend to cope by getting stuck in a narrow range of behaviors and responses even if they are not helpful. A child who has learned to have temper tantrums when she is angry, and her parents who have learned to punish or pamper her, are stuck in maladaptive, non-growthful environments—‘a bad play’. It’s like playing the same part in the same play on the same stage day after day.

As your child's therapist my job is to help your child identify their strengths and take pride in who they are. I will create a safe environment for them to express themselves using play, art and games through which they can learn about their emotions and to express themselves in healthy ways. In addition to helping your child, I know that It can feel scary, sad and lonely when your child is struggling. I have had a great deal of experience in empowering parents to be the best supports to their children as they can be. I can do the same for you!

Unlike adults, young children have not fully developed their ability to communicate uncomfortable feelings. Often children will act out when they feel angry, worried, or sad. I specialize in helping children with grief and trauma in a safe and understanding environment. Children express their difficult feelings through story telling, playing, and drawing. I work with the parent and the child to develop coping skills that help the child to feel happier and express their emotions in a healthier manner. I was trained to address grief and trauma after Hurricane Katrina with children in New Orleans.
