I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with sixteen years of clinical and case management experience working in foster care agencies, domestic violence shelters, community mental health centers and 8 years experience in private practice.   My play therapy practice, Playful Awareness, was created in 2009, to offer children, teens and adults an effective, engaging alternative to traditional psychotherapy, emphasizing the importance of mindful self awareness and the need for a playful, curious approach to life.  DBT-informed individual and group services are also offered.    My specialties include working with families with young children, assisting parents in creating a healthy parent-child relationship, children struggling with ADHD and life transition issues; teaching co-parenting skills and working with clients struggling with sadness, depression, trauma/grief and self-harm/suicidal ideation/family dynamics issues.    My "superpowers" are my ability to have empathy for others, my compassion for their struggle and my creativity and passion for helping my clients create a life worth living.  I offer a spa-like, safe space for children and adults to share their stories, identify goals and believe they can be happy.    WHAT TO EXPECT I want you to feel comfortable and cared for during and between your therapy sessions.  If you arrive early for your sessions, you are welcome to have some coffee and make yourself at home in our comfy chairs.  All appointments are scheduled for the convenience of our clients, big and small.  PARENTS  If you are bringing your child, we  will discuss goals and objectives at the first session.  After a few sessions, we will have a feedback session to discuss progress.  Co-parenting therapy is also provided to help you and your ex reduce conflict, learn cooperative ways of communicating and reduce any negative impact on your children.   OVERALL HEALTH: Your physical and spiritual health are also important.  I want to know if you are struggling with any medical or spiritual issues that may affect your emotional well being such as inflammation, allergies, digestion and weight.   I want to hear your story... to help you create a new hero chapter.  If you knew you could not fail, what would you wish for, hope for or do?   FEES We do not bill insurance, although we do offer longer session times, office and home based appointments and evening appointments year round to meet your needs.  I also offer free essential oil workshops, educating clients on the use of essential oils for optimal health.  
 
I look forward to hearing from you!
