Creative therapy for children, teens, and support for the whole family​

Welcome! Therapy for children and teens is my specialty. I offer personalized services to best fit the needs of your family. In addition to individual child and teen therapy, I can provide support for the whole family through sibling and family therapy sessions. Collaboration regarding parenting support is an integral part of the therapy process. As a child and teen therapist, I use creative means such as art therapy and play therapy in order to increase self-esteem and empower young people to seek positive changes in their lives.

I am a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and registered Art Therapist

I knew from the start my path was to be a child therapist. I love to inspire young people to create new stories that define who they are in more preferred ways. I highlight and celebrate their inherent strengths, resources, and abilities. My background in the creative arts becomes a novel way to increase engagement and expression during our time together, and often leads to transformative insights and new ways to move forward.

I offer an innovative approach to child, teen, and family therapy

At times as a parent I understand you can try everything in your power to help, yet the problems continue to impact your lives. I appreciate all of your knowledge and efforts, and I’m here to make your life easier by contributing a fresh and creative perspective while remaining sensitive to the unique challenges facing your family. I collaborate with you and your child to create a new and alternative story for yourselves and with each other, a story that incorporates what is valued most. When young people are facing behavioral, social, emotional, or development challenges at school and home, new outcomes can be discovered through a combination of art therapy, play, and other creative forms of expression. With your help, together we can find effective solutions.
