I specialize in working with Adults who are experiencing difficulties managing emotional distress, social situations, familial events, and/or adjustments to life transitions. I particularly enjoy working with Parents who feel overwhelmed and/or challenged by the responsibilities and experiences that raising children often bring. I also specialize in working with Children as young as 3 years of age through the use of Child-Centered Play Therapy & Filial Therapy.

Additional specialty areas include Parent Skills Training, Filial Family Therapy (Parent-Child Relationship Therapy), Child-Centered Play Therapy, and various types of Support Groups for Parents, Young Adults, Women, & Men.
