I ally with families to provide a strengths-based play therapy approach to children of all ages. I believe that children have the ability within themselves to grow and heal, and my job is to create a safe space in which they can.

More Info About My Practice
Thank you for visiting my page! I work with children and families (2-17) from a strengths-based perspective which means that my job is to enhance and build upon the existing skills of your child/family to provide a foundation for growth. Creating a safe, trusting relationship with the child in which they feel free to express themselves is of prime importance to me. It's also important to me that I create a relationship with your family and partner with you to provide optimal outcomes for your child. YOU are the expert on your child, and I am here to provide guidance and support.
Play is a child's natural language. Children express their thoughts and feelings through their behaviors, and as a registered play therapist, I have received training to help them process those thoughts and feelings. Play therapy honors a child's developmental level and allows them a full range of expression through play, art, sand, and music. Play therapy has been found to be effective with children who are experiencing anxiety, depression, behavioral challenges, grief/loss, divorce, trauma, and anything else that affects a child's overall well-being.
I have been providing therapeutic services to children and adolescents for over five years. I am a licensed clinical social worker and registered play therapist with experience in both office-based settings and school-based settings. I also trained with Dr. Robert Grant to become a certified AutPlay provider which is a play-based behavioral approach for children on the autism spectrum or with another neurodevelopmental disorder.
Aside from my training, I have a real love for this work and would be happy to talk to you more about my services!
