My specialty is utilizing play therapy and family therapy to address opposition, impulsivity, and trauma in both children and adolescents. I create a safe space for children to explore their feelings and process challenges they may have.
I am trained in play therapy, child centered therapy, family therapy, solution focused therapy, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing. These skills assist me in understanding the child as well as the family’s needs, meet them where they are and help them to achieve their individual goals in treatment.
Play is the language of children and I will utilize play to engage, build trust and make changes in behaviors as well as process traumas in therapy. I engage and invite the whole family to play and create a positive experience in session that can be utilized to make progress on goals and changes in the child’s behaviors.
