Specializing with individuals and families who have experienced trauma and grief. I have worked with children and youth in a variety of settings for a majority of my life. I have over 25 years experience working with children in daycare, early head start, head start, and treatment homes. My professional experience as a therapist has included outpatient therapy with youth ages 1-18yrs and adults.
I have training in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Theory, Child Parent Psychotherapy, and a variety of other interventions. I do enjoy using play, games, and art to support healing and learning. I find my work with youth has allowed me to have a greater understanding of the foundations that can shape our later experiences and do apply much of my knowledge to working with adults of all ages.
There is always room for Hope, if we want to hold onto it. Sometimes we just need a little help to hold on.
