What I Do Here.

01.

PLAY THERAPY SERVICES

Play is a child's natural way to communicate. Play therapy is effective with children experiencing a wide range of emotional, social, and behavioral difficulties. While working with children individually, I also provide direct feedback to the parents with tips and suggestions to improve behaviors at home.

02.

TEEN & ADULT COUNSELING

Counseling services for teens and adults may look different from client to client. I provide services to help you discover your individual strengths and how to utilize them to create the life you want. In session, we will try a variety of techniques such as expressive arts, sandtray therapy, or traditional talk therapy.

03.

CHILD-PARENT RELATIONSHIP TRAINING

I teach the parent how to improve their communication and relationship with their child through weekly play sessions. The 10-week course provides parents with tips, tools, and the skills to effectively parent. The positive growth in this relationship extends from the play sessions to daily life.
