About My Clients

I am a Registered Play Therapist with the Association for Play Therapy. I have worked with children, teens and families for over 10 years. I have experience working with substance abuse, aggression, depression, anxiety, trauma, autism, developmental delays, ADHD, divorce, grief, behavioral issues and more.

My Background and Approach

I have a masters degree in social work from Hunter College, NYC and a masters degree in Psychological Counseling from Columbia University, NYC. I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Florida. In addition, to completing an additional 200 hours of play therapy education with supervision. I come from a strengths and solution focused perspective. I believe It is important to build on one’s strengths and find a practical and easy solution to address problem behaviors. In addition, I utilize a client centered approach to focus on your overall well being. The goal is to increase your adaptive coping skills to improve behaviors and performance at home and school/work. These goals can be addressed with different modalities such as talk therapy, walk and talk therapy in nature and play/sand/art therapy. My goal is to make it a collaborative and creative process to bring about healing. For children and adolescents, the approach of play is less intimidating than talk .

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe we all strive to be the best version of ourselves. With the increased pressures of daily life, it can be beneficial to have some outside support and guidance to learn new ways to cope. I am constantly researching new methods and bringing you the most effective approach. I study the brain and how it impacts our behavior and development and I use this neurobiological lens to inform treatment.
