I specialize in the use of play therapy, expressive therapy, family therapy and parenting consultations for children and teens aged 3 - 18. I have extensive experience with children and families who have experienced trauma, attachment difficulties, losses, divorce and other stressful life changes. I work with children with a wide variety of behavioral needs, including school problems, oppositional behavior, depression, anxiety and ADHD.
I have 15+ years of experience working with children, adolescents, parents and families. I've received extensive training in trauma-focused and child-centered play therapies. I enjoy partnering with parents to provide treatment for their child that is fun and effective. I work closely with parents throughout the therapy process.
I also has extensive experience with the child welfare, educational, juvenile justice and mental health systems. I coordinate with professionals and supports caregivers in navigating these systems so that your child can be successful.
