Each child is unique and each requires a unique roadmap for support. Children can’t always put their feelings into words and the challenge of managing emotions, recovering from disappointments and making transitions can lead to overwhelm and acting out. I specialize in working with children, adolescents and families who need support. My approach is both developmental and relationship based. I use play therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness to help children work through underlying feelings and emotions. My ultimate goal is to help your child find healing and growth. I offer a warm, calming presence and can help children develop a positive sense of self. In therapy I provide a healing space to help children develop skills around emotional regulation, problem solving and coping. I have over 15 years of experience providing counseling support to children and families.
