Licensed Psychologist

I specialize in the treatment of young children. My treatment approach varies depending on the child's needs. However, I am trained in play therapy, behavioral-based therapies, and parental training. One treatment model that I am trained in is Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). PCIT aims to help improve the parent-child relationship through interaction. I help parents develop more effective parenting techniques and reduce behavior issues with the child.

In Play Therapy a trained Play Therapist can establish a therapeutic relationship with your child. Through the use of play the counselor aids your child in learning how to express feelings, modify behavior, develop problem solving skills, and learn new ways of relating to others. The play therapy environment provides a safe emotional distance from the child's problems so that he or she can begin to develop appropriate expressions of thoughts and feelings. In the playroom the most troubling problems can be safely confronted and lasting resolutions can be discovered, rehearsed, and mastered.

Children are not equipped with adult words to help them express what is going on within their minds and hearts and lives. With more than half our marriages ending in divorce, kids these days are suffering in a huge way that is heartbreaking. Play therapy is all about giving children a safe place to "play out" their experiences, "act out" their anxiety and anger that they don't have the maturity to understand or communicate and learn coping skills to help them find peace in a chaotic world. A must for children who have experienced loss in any form in their lives or need appropriate empowerment to overcome bullying or other obstacles they encounter on a daily basis.
