You might be feeling more sad, angry, worried, or lonely than usual. If you are Black, Indigenous, a person of color, queer, trans, gender expansive, or live with a disability, you may be tired of being strong. You may notice certain spaces where you don’t feel comfortable being your full self. Your child may be struggling in school or adjusting to a big family change or loss. You may be frustrated with behavior and discipline and wish for a closer bond with your child. I'm here for you!
Play is the language of childhood. Young children respond to stress and change differently than adults do, and they communicate differently, too. As a play therapist, I provide a safe environment where children can express their emotions, learn coping skills, develop self-control, and build self-esteem in a way that comes naturally to them. I love working with children, and would be honored to help support your family!
Wellness naturally arises when we experience empathy, acceptance, curiosity, and hope in relationships. I aim to bring these qualities to our therapeutic relationship, and support you in creating this kind of relationship with the important people in your life. Together we will explore your thoughts, feelings, experiences, & identities and integrate mindfulness skills into our sessions so you feel free to live a meaningful life aligned with your values and inner wisdom.
I love supporting parents because I know they are the most important people in their child's life. Child-Parent Relationship Therapy is an effective way to reduce behavioral, emotional, and social concerns in children age 3-10 and it decreases parental stress! When we work together, I will help you strengthen your bond with your child, teach you developmentally-appropriate skills to make playtime more meaningful and discipline more effective, and provide you with emotional support along the way.
If you are Black, Indigenous, a person of color, queer, trans, gender expansive, or live with a disability, you may be tired of being strong. You may notice certain spaces and people where you don’t feel comfortable being your full self. In therapy you can feel understood, valued, and empowered to heal and grow. In therapy you can explore and celebrate your culture, your wisdom, your strengths, and your identities.

What would it feel like to visit a healing space every week and be supported by other women and femmes of color? How would your life and relationships be better if you could share your inner experiences with folks who understand you? Group therapy is an effective and affordable way to cultivate resilience, improve your relationship skills, find your voice, and heal from depression, anxiety, and trauma in community with others. Therapy groups meet weekly for 10 weeks beginning Spring 2021.
