Specialties

I specialize in therapy with children ages 2-18. I have worked with both younger children in Play Therapy and Family Therapy. I have been doing play therapy since 2005 working with children around various issues. Some of those topics have included domestic violence, divorce, school & social issues, stress, anxiety, depression, and traumatic experiences.

My work with parents has been focused on education and improving communicating with their children. I am trained in filial family therapy which provides special training for parents to create a special time allowing them to connect with their children.

My work with adolescents focuses on emotional issues such as school struggles, family issues, stress, depression, and anxiety. While working at Island Grove Regional Treatment Center, a agency specializing in substance abuse treatment, I received special training in the substance use field, and have done drug and alcohol counseling with teens since 2005.
