Play is the language of children. Children delight in my special playroom. I use therapeutic toys, games and creative techniques to help kids express themselves in an accepting and supportive atmosphere and to help parents enhance their relationships with their children.
I also work with teens, adults, and families to help them heal deeply and gain new perspectives so that they no longer feel triggered by previous difficult or traumatic experiences.
Whether you are struggling with the impact of sudden or chronic illness, disability, trauma, loss, eating disorders, a rupture in relationship, learning disabilities, neglect or abuse, my strength-based approach will help you and/or your children grow closer together, heal emotionally inside and out, and find inner resiliency. I have 39 years' experience working with children, adults, and families. I am also a Certified Clinical Supervisor. I use a variety of modalities, including but not limited to Family Systems Therapy, Play Therapy, Sand Tray Therapy, EMDR Trauma Therapy, Internal Family Systems, In-Depth Mind-Body methods, and Mindfulness.
Challenges can be difficult but they can also lead us to new emotional growth. I will be there with you, side by side, in your healing journey, as you find your inner strengths.
