Therapist Overview

Being a parent has its own set of challenges; when you add your child’s behavioral, or emotional challenges on top, it can become overwhelming for both your family, and your child. It is ok to feel overwhelmed and at the brink of exhaustion. I get this and is here to assist your child, and family work through these challenges; by helping to strengthen your child’s overall well-being. I will provide a holistic environment that fosters healing the whole family. I am trained in EMDR and play therapy, and will provide a safe place to help promote healing. I promote child-led play, a child needs to be given the chance, and time to process their own stressors in their own time. When a child feels in control and empowered, this is when the healing process begins.
