My Approach to Helping
For over 15 years, I have been working with all ages and continue to enjoy meeting the needs of others.
As a Registered Play Therapist, I believe in the curative power of play. It is an integral part of a child's development and an essential expressive outlet. I will help your child or teen to develop effective coping skills. The gamut of issues commonly addressed include: anger management, performance anxiety, adjustments to change, panic attacks, attentional issues, depression, and medical issues. Since you as the parent/caretaker are an essential part of the process, I also offer parenting sessions in conjunction with individual and family therapy.
To best meet the unique needs of teens and adults, I individualize my approach, resulting in my often using a combination of therapies. I will follow your lead as I respect that everyone needs to go at their own pace in the therapy process. Since I believe everyone has the innate ability to heal themselves, I will work collaboratively with you to achieve your goals, including developing insight into the underlying reasons contributing to any issues. I can also provide you with effective techniques to manage the daily challenges of life.
