I believe that the ultimate purpose of therapy is to transform. We transform hopelessness to hopefulness, fear into courage or bravery, insecurity into confidence, and confusion into clarity. I work with adults and children who need help transforming despair into hope, anxiety into relaxation and control, sadness into joy, and shame and guilt into confidence and freedom.
I specialize in working with children, mainly elementary school-aged and pre-adolescent. Children communicate best via metaphors and therefore, Play Therapy and Creative Expression are powerful modalities used to understand the child's conscious and unconscious needs. I further use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to address behavioral issues, and empower parents with tools to best support their children emotionally, developmentally, and psychologically.
I studied Buddhist psychology at Naropa University, Boulder, CO. I researched the role of mindfulness in everyday life and taught and practiced mindfulness internationally since 1997. I'm a K-9 assisted specialist, an animal assisted modality that uses certified dogs in the treatment of PTSD, depression, anxiety, and more.
