Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in Covington, WA
I love helping parents learn how to play and interact with their children. I specialize in working with children under 10 who have behavioral issues. I have almost a decade of experience working with children who have experienced abuse. I was a foster parent and I understand the difficulties that come with creating a family in a non-traditional way. I have been trained in Circle of Security, Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, and Triple P parenting.
A large part of the work that I have done in infant mental health is working on building attachment and increasing security in relationships. Attachment is important in every relationship, and I know how to help create and maintain secure attachments even if you have a pattern of insecure attachment in your life.
I have years of personal experience in the ethical non-monogamy community. I love helping couples find security in their relationship so that they feel safe to explore others. I nerd out about relationship dynamics and love reading everything I can about polyamory and alternative lifestyles. I work with people to increase secure attachment, increase sexual and emotional fulfillment, and create the life that they want.
I love helping parents learn how to play and interact with their children in developmentally appropriate ways. I have almost a decade of experience working with children who have experienced trauma. Using play and a brain-based approach, I help families increase their bonding and attachment. I teach parents effective parenting strategies and skills, and I teach children behavioral management skills. I have training in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, Triple P Parenting, and Circle of Security.
