More Information
I specialize in providing a holistic and integrated approach to concerns such as anxiety, depression, stress management, self-esteem, trauma, grief and loss, parenting, and relationship concerns.

I am trained in mindfulness-based approaches, somatic psychotherapy (Hakomi Method and Somatic Experiencing), play therapy, yoga, energy psychology, sandtray and art, as well as traditional cognitive behavioral therapy (including dialectical behavior therapy and exposure therapy). I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and adults.

With children, I use play therapy, sandtray, somatic experiencing, and art to explore concerns such as
. Grief
. Family transitions
. Behavior issues
. Bullying
. Self-esteem
. Anxiety
. Trauma

Through these gentle and creative methods, children are able to explore emotions, discover their strengths, and build coping skills.

In addition to my private practice, I have provided services to the non-profit sector for the past two decades.
