My Approach to Helping

Are you having difficulty managing your child andor their behaviors? Have you felt like you have tried everything and just cannot seem to connect with your child or help them cope with their anxieties or behaviors? I specialize in treating children as young as 3, helping them work through challenges or struggles they are facing. Through play therapy, EMDR and cognitive therapies, I meet clients where they are and guide them through their healing. I believe all our experiences make up who we are and my therapy is focused on getting to the root of the issue(s), while also providing coping skills to manage day-to-day stresses.

I provide parents with skills and techniques to encourage them to reconnect with their child where they are able to confidently manage their child's anxieties and behaviors. I have extensive experience and training in working with parents whose children have disruptive behavior patterns or who have survived traumatic events.

I have a passion for working with individuals who seek healing through Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR was originally created for client's who have experienced trauma, but now it has been shown to provide client's with relief from anxiety, depression, grief, emotional disturbances and so much more! EMDR can provide relief from these issues much quicker than traditional talk therapy. For more information about EMDR, visit emdria.org for contact me.

More Info About My Practice

I treat every client as an individual and tailor my therapeutic approach to their needs. I am a certified Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapist and fully trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) working towards being a certified EMDR therapist. I am directive and eclectic in my approach to therapy and I believe in creating a safe space where the client can heal their mind, body, and spirit as a whole. I am certified in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) and although I am not currently practicing this model to fidelity, I frequently use PCIT skills with parents who struggle to manage their child's challenging and disruptive behaviors.

I meet every client where they are no matter their life circumstances, culture, religion or spirituality and provide space for them to heal at their own pace.

Please feel free to call me for a free 10-15 minute phone consultation. I look forward to hearing from you.
