Is your child struggling with big emotions? Having difficulties with focus and attention in school? I am a licensed counselor and registered play therapist. My area of expertise is working with children and adolescents that have experienced trauma, have mood disorders, ADHD, and autism spectrum disorder through the use of play-based interventions, as well as trauma-informed approaches. My mission is to meet you where you are at in life to provide support, hope and healing to you and your family through a collaborative and supportive, therapeutic relationship. I believe that there is no "one size fits all" when it comes to healing. The population I enjoy working with are children ages 4-18. As a registered play therapist, I currently provide integrative play therapy, child-centered play therapy, as well as trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Sand tray therapy, and Solution-focused therapy. Play Therapy uses a child's natural language of play. Children have not fully developed cognitively or emotionally, so they are not always able to express themselves verbally. I help the child to identify their feelings and express them in socially appropriate ways, while they are also learning coping skills to utilize in everyday situations.
