Hello, I am so glad you have found my website and I would love to tell you a bit about my practice:
It has been widely established that children have an astonishing ability to heal when they are given a safe and therapeutic environment to work through challenges. This concept, that children naturally gravitate toward their greatest potential, is the basis of my approach as a child therapist. Unlike adults, children’s verbal and cognitive abilities are still developing, which means that play is often the most effective language for children to process and communicate. I primarily utilize directive and non-directive play therapy within my practice, however every child is unique and has a unique set of needs, which I continually reassess throughout their time in therapy. I love working with children and seeing them overcome detrimental feelings, such as anxiety, sadness, low self-esteem, or anger through positive therapeutic work. Once these underlying emotions have been integrated and worked out, this naturally leads to an alleviation of problematic behaviors, such as defiance, tantrums, or withdrawal. It is a joy to be a facilitator in this process. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you!
