About My Clients
Most of my work centers around play therapy with children ages 4-11. Play is a universal language and I welcome children and families from all backgrounds, orientations, and beliefs. Most of my clients are people who are looking for support in understanding themselves and their children. In session, I use play, expressive arts, movement, music and also talk therapy (with parents). In my office or playroom, the process of healing will be unique to your family's needs.
My Background and Approach
I have worked with individuals and families across the lifespan. Most recently, I worked in schools providing individual and group counseling to children and adolescents ages 5-12. I am well-versed in helping people find tangible tools to improve their experiences in all areas of life. I also recognize that an important piece of healing comes from having the space to be as you are and be seen for who you want to become. In my office, we will focus on the quality of life you want to achieve and take steps toward reaching your goals.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that human beings are incredibly resilient and capable of change. I also believe that every person has a story to tell and a life worth celebrating. Oftentimes, we lose sight of the good in our lives when difficult experiences weigh on us. Through community support and individualized care, anyone can reestablish a sense of well-being. Though not affiliated with any religious belief, I was raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and am experienced in working with individuals questioning and/or transitioning from deeply held belief systems. Whether those belief systems involve race, gender, sexual identity, or religion, I value your lived experience and welcome you as you are.
