Helping children ages 5-15 and their families to navigate life’s traumatic experiences


Tackling what feels really big and heavy at the moment, I assist children with finding their voices to name and express their feelings positively, so they feel seen and heard.  I also enjoy working with parents to explore opportunities that work with their family system, to engage with their children and shift the family dynamic in a positive way.


About Me

I am a child / play therapist! I love working with kids and their families to navigate life’s transitions, stressors, and adjustments. 

As a parent of three children myself, I understand the struggles that parents and families face with what often feels like chaos.  Specifically, as a parent of a child that has experienced significant medical trauma, I work with children ages 5-15 and their families to navigate life’s traumatic experiences.


Areas of Speciality

Our experiences in life can often shape who we are, but they do not have to define us. My clients often struggle with adjustment, anxiety, depression, trouble communicating their feelings, and navigating stressors. I work with clients and their families to promote healthy coping strategies and build stronger connections and, ultimately, understanding.


My areas of specialty are:

  • Children
  • Play Therapy


I specialize in helping clients with the following challenges:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • Anger
  • ADHD
  • Neurodiverse Diagnoses


How I Help Clients Heal and Grow:

There’s not always just one approach that works with each client. Working together, we will approach challenges as a team. Clients should be prepared to do the work it takes to feel better. It’s important that clients recognize that their treatment is all-encompassing- mind, body, and spirit.


My Approach:

Children with symptoms of anxiety and/or depression due to trauma, ADHD and other neurodiverse diagnoses are my specialty.  Because I treat each child on an individual basis, my approach to therapy is eclectic.  Not all children enjoy games, art, or talking.  One size does not fit all. I welcome you to reach out and see how I can facilitate healing for your child and your family.
