Services

Individual Therapy:


Are you feeling stuck?  Are you not sure how to move forward after a traumatic event, relationship, or experience?   Feeling depressed, anxious, or find yourself lost in the world? Individual therapy can help unravel the conflicting thoughts, feelings, and experiences in life and support you in creating a clearer path and direction for your life.

Parent-Child Treatment:


Do you find you and your child are continually missing each others cues? Are you having difficulty getting your child to sleep at night, or to engage in social activities with adults or peers?  Parent-child treatment can help you and your child understand the developmental and social emotional cues that your child is sending you.  It can also work to increase your child’s confidence.

Child/Play Therapy:


Has your child been exposed to trauma?  Do they engage in repetitive play themes that are concerning to you? Are they having difficulty sleeping alone or engaging in social activities?  As play is the language of children, I work with children to understand and gain control over their own lives.  Within play therapy, I work with children to unravel conflicting thoughts, emotions, and experiences in a safe and non-threatening manner.
