Play is kids’ most natural form of communication. Toys are to kids what words are to adults. Play Therapy, like counseling for adults, lets kids express their feelings and process their experiences in order to develop more effective strategies for managing their worlds.
In our fast-paced, social-media-saturated, and achievement-driven society many adults and children struggle with anxiety. I am passionate about helping both children and adults build trust in their capacity to navigate life's challenges.
I have special training in child development, parenting support and Child-Centered Play Therapy (CCPT), an evidence-based treatment approach for working with children ages 3-10. I have experience working with children, and their families, facing social, emotional, or behavioral challenges, or life transitions.
With specialized training in Child-Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT), I support parents in understanding their children's behavior and learn to communicate love and boundaries in ways their children understand. This process is the foundation of a strong parent-child bond which leads to feelings of competency and satisfaction in parenting.
