“Enter into children’s play and you will find the place where their minds, hearts, and souls meet.”~Virginia Axline~

My greatest passion and area of specialty is in working with children, of all ages, who are experiencing significant distress in their lives, including: death and loss, parental separation/divorce, impaired self-esteem/confidence, excessive shyness, childhood depression, fears/phobias and more severe trauma such as violence or abuse.

My approach toward working with children involves the use of play therapy, in which I aim to provide a therapeutically safe environment that promotes growth and healing thru instilling confidence and empowering children to reach their full potential.

Another area of specialty is in working with adults presenting with: relationship issues, anger management, difficulties at work, depression and anxiety. I strive to create a supportive and calm environment in which the individual is given time and space to both discuss and process various issues at their own pace. BACK TO ALL THERAPISTS
