I have been working with children and families since 2000. I gained understanding and valuable insight into the minds and lives of hundreds of children over the course of 15 years as a school based social worker. Beginning in 2011, I discovered the power of sandplay therapy. Since that time I have been using sandplay with children who present with anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, familial stressors, divorce, peer and educational difficulties. Using a child's natural language of play along side of developing coping, problem solving skills and working with parents to better understand their children's behaviors and finding new ways to support them is my formula for success.
