Children are precious, and every one is unique. Children often have needs that typical talk therapy cannot address. I specialize in helping children heal and grow through play, art, and a variety of specialized child therapies. I utilize a child-centered approach as the foundation when treating children. One of the primary goals in child centered play therapy is to create a safe environment in which they can explore, have a witness to their story, and gain awareness and understanding into their unique challenges.

Parenting is the most important and probably the most difficult job and most of us have very little training in it. I can help you find those elusive instructions that your children were not born with. Parent coaching is done with individuals, couples, or groups. See the Groups and Workshops page for information on upcoming parenting events.
Family can be wonderful, and at times overwhelming! Whether you need help in parenting, communication, integrating a blended family, or just want to help your family grow even stronger, I can help. I use an interactive, playful approach with families that makes family therapy fun.
We all struggle at times, and sometimes it is too much to overcome without help. I am a trained and caring therapist who will walk with you through your journey of healing. Whether you struggle with depression, anxiety, self esteem issues, trauma, sexual abuse, addiction, or any other number of problems I can help. I have experience with Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) as well as art, sand tray, and play therapy.
I understand the value of working together. Sometimes being with a group of people who are struggling with similar issues brings support and understanding in a powerful way. Groups also offer an affordable alternative to individual therapy. Some of the groups and classes currently offered include Child Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT), General Processing group for adults, Parent Support group, & Self-Esteem and Empowerment for tweens, teens, and women. I regularly add new groups to help meet the needs of the people I serve, so check the Groups and Workshops page often
