About My Clients
The emotional/behavioral challenge I specialize in for children include: grief & loss, difficulty with transitions, tantrums/emotional outbursts, defiance, emotional sensitivity, perfectionism, low self-esteem, anxiety, & fears/phobias. For tweens & teens, I specialize in self esteem, anxiety, depression, relationships, and individuation.
My Background and Approach
Parents seek Play Therapy and Parent Support sessions with me to help their child work through their behavioral challenges and improve their parent-child relationship. Play Therapy sessions help kids to express their feelings in regulated ways, promote self-confidence and autonomy, improve their relationship to themselves and others, support social-emotional learning, and work to embrace your child's natural essence helping them to live a full, authentic, and resilient life. I also offer counseling for Tweens & Teens (ages 11-15) through this complicated point of development, especially now in such a complicated world.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I truly feel my life has been guided towards working with children, teens, and families. After losing my mother at the age of 16, it was essential that I built the skills necessary to become resilient in the face of such an early trauma. Overcoming obstacles has grown into a passion of mine, I am constantly inspired by the strength and tenacity of the human spirit to grow through what we go through, gaining the self-knowledge and tools necessary to thrive amidst any obstacles life throws at us. I see each client that walks through my door with this capacity to overcome challenges, and look to evoke their strengths and natural wisdom in order to guide them in their therapeutic process and transformation.
