My Background and Approach

I provide children and adults with a safe, comfortable environment as well as genuine care which helps individuals heal. Children and parents are often criticized for their mistakes and struggles and are not recognized for their efforts. I help children and parents to believe in themselves and identify the strengths that they possess. Children and parents have the right to feel respected, be seen, and be heard. Through play, I give children and adults a voice. I utilize creativity in my sessions in order to keep the individual engaged and to make our sessions fun and enjoyable. I believe every individual has the right to experience moments of happiness in their every day. Laughter is extremely important, and I try to make children and adults laugh in my sessions in order to decrease any anxiety that they may experience. As the saying goes, “Laughter is the best medicine.”
