My Approach to Helping

My approach to therapy is simple and straightforward in many ways. You are a whole person and as such, I work holistically with each person with the view that you or your child is an individual, with unique strengths, quirks, life experiences and needs. I will listen carefully to you, and together, we will set goals for the therapy and move forward with a plan of action. The pathway to achieving your goals may include; supportive talk-based therapy, learning mindfulness-based practices, utilizing EMDR to alleviate painful experiences from the past that are affecting you in the present, and CBT. I have extensive training and experience working with children and adolescents and have found non-directive play therapy to be highly effective in alleviating many childhood issues and bringing about real, long-term change. I also use EMDR for children and adolescents to alleviate upsetting experiences and trauma. Play-based CBT for specific issues such as anxiety, bullying, and trauma have also been highly effective in reducing distressing symptoms. When working with parents and children together, I utilize a family-based play therapy called Theraplay, and sometimes use Child-Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT). Each of these approaches are designed to strengthen the parent-child relationship and improve feelings of parenting confidence. I am passionate about supporting children and parents, and in some instances, work with parents only through coaching and supportive counseling to strengthen parenting identity, broaden your parenting skill-set, and develop new ways of communicating with your child to achieve a healthier, happier family life.
