I have worked extensively with children for over 19 years. I am proud to be a nationally certified Parents as Teachers educator that enhances my interactions with the child and parent. I have been fortunate to work with children who are aggressive, cast aside and misunderstood. I am certified to work with children with inappropriate sexual behaviors and proud to serve that population. I approach dealing with children with a great deal of joy that makes them feel non-judged and important. I treat children from ages 3-18.

Directive and non-directive play therapy are the two main ways I work with children in therapy. I use art, sand, toys and games to help children feel safe in the counseling environment. Children express themselves through play, using their imaginations to share with the therapist their thoughts and feelings. Working with young children also heavily involves the parents, teaching them new skills that help with behavior modification.
