Welcome to my practice! I am dedicated to helping children, teens, and adults with family conflict, trauma, and difficult phase of life transitions. I have specialized training in Sand Play Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, Trauma-Focused-CBT and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing Therapy). Sand Play therapy is a wonderful modality of treatment offering children a developmentally appropriate form of expression in a safe and nurturing environment and also has fabulous benefits for any age! EMDR is an effective technique that can help you in healing from traumatic events and memories.
As a Licensed Associate Counselor, most of my work focuses on helping clients manage anxiety, depression, parent-child conflict, and unresolved trauma. In addition, for over a decade, I have been working specifically with youth on develping resiliency, managing self-esteem issues, and creating and maintaining healthy relationships.
Given that I was raised in a blended family and created one of my own, I am also very attuned to the dynamics of divorce, blended families, and family re-formation. In addition to providing individual counseling addressing divorce-related concerns, I am leading a therapy group for children dealing with their parents' divorce.
Let's work together toward your goals and create a healthier and more mindful way of living. Sliding scale available.
