I am open to working with children, adolescents & adults. For adults and adolescents, my approach to therapy is relational, creative and collaborative and I believe very strongly in forming a trusting relationship with my clients. For children, I use a variety of creative and play-based techniques to help them feel safe, comfortable, and able to express themselves. Please visit the "What Is Play Therapy?" tab above to learn more about these techniques.
WORKING WITH CHILDREN:
With younger clients, I use a variety of creative & play-based techniques to help them feel safe, comfortable, and able to express themselves. Our work may involve role-playing, puppets, playing games, drawing, or painting.
Working with your child is a collaborative experience. I am honored to join you on your journey toward a happier, calmer family and I believe it is crucial to involve parents along every step of the way. Most often, parents participate in many therapy sessions. Occasionally, I may want to do some therapy sessions with just your child. This decision will be made with your input and with much thought and consideration. Before I meet your child, we will complete an extensive parents-only session where we focus on your child's current challenges, his/her developmental history, and what you can expect if you choose me as your child's therapist.C
Areas in which I specialize include: Trauma, Anxiety, and Attachment. In addition, I can also help with concerns related to:
• Social Skills
• Life Changes & Adjustment
WORKING WITH TEENS & ADULTS:While many of my clients are children and families, I also work with adolescent and adult clients. My goal is to leave clients with strategies, communication skills, and ways of thinking that can be transferred from the therapy room to everyday life - to parenting, friendships, family dynamics, workplace, and those moments at 2 a.m. when it is difficult to fall back asleep.
