About My Clients

Are you often overwhelmed and perplexed by your child’s behavior? Do you feel at times that you and your child lack the necessary tools to communicate and thrive? Being a parent and a child in today’s day is no easy feat. Feeling supported and having the necessary roadmap is key. My goal is to provide tools and support to child and parent alike to assist them in being the best versions of themselves now and in the future.

My Background and Approach

Play is the inherent language of children and I provide a safe space for your child to explore, understand, and express themselves. My role as a registered play therapist is to empathetically help your child to understand their own emotions and provide them with the tools to better navigate their world through play and expressive arts. In addition, I provide you as the parent tools to best support your child during difficult moments that may leave you exhausted and overwhelmed. Additionally, I am a provider of EMDR, Brainspotting, and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT). Traumatic experiences can rob us of feelings of safety and security. It can often lead us to feel stuck and alters how we see ourselves and the world. I will consult with you to explore and understand how your past experiences have affected you. We will collaborate to determine which treatment modality may be best suited for you to regain a sense of safety, stability, and control in your life.
