Hi there! I work with children ages 0-10 and adults ages 20-60. I also work with couples around communication skills. I enjoy the variety of seeing clients online, in-person, and outdoors.
With children, I do a 45-minute Synergetic Play Therapy session in my office or outside. Then, later in the week, I have a 15-minute phone call with their parents and caretakers to suggest ways to integrate the child’s therapy at home. This is essentially family therapy but seeing members separately. Children are more resilient than adults, so sessions usually progress faster and have results that can be seen, not just felt.
Many people are surprised that I work with children AND adults. I like this variety in ages because I love seeing the spectrum of how people evolve. Different developmental stages bring different challenges and gifts, and all of it interests me! My work with children compliments my work with adults, as we all feel small and young at times. I meet both populations with tenderness, humor, and directness.
Specialty Treatment Areas:
-Depression (including an overall vague feeling of something missing in life)
-Anxiety (including chronic anxiety and anxiety from specific events)
-Trauma (all kinds and feelings of overwhelm)
-Challenging Transitions (including relationships, jobs, and grieving losses)
-Women’s Issues (including motherhood, fertility issues, systemic sexism)
-Gender Identity Issues (supporting trans, nonbinary, and gender diversity)
-Parenting Difficulties (I get it! I have 2 kiddos!)
How I work:
It is my sole’s work to be a creative therapist! While talking is essential in therapy, I can offer more. With my multiple approaches, I help clients access their personal, deeper wisdom. I can use nature, art, play, body awareness, humor, and mindfulness to support adult and child clients. My goal is for my clients to leave my office feeling their center and how they belong in this world.
Together we can work on:
*Finding the gifts within your struggles
*Learning how to keep calm in anxiety producing environments
*Exploring how your past influences your present
*Creating healthy choices and habits to excel your therapy
*Identifying relationship patterns
