Philosophy

My passion is children and working with them and their families to overcome issues in their school or home environments to become who they truly are and feel confident and accepted. I feel I can give parents the tools and encouragement they need to parent well and to have the confidence to navigate difficult situations. The bulk of my adult practice focuses on depression, anxiety and codependent relationship issues. I focus on a holistic approach to the individual; cognition, emotion, social, physical and spiritual. I enjoy helping clients overcome misconceptions from their past to work towards their best and most congruent self.

I have been trained in play and activity therapy and keep current by attending conferences and education and I am a member of the Association for Play Therapy. I use a parenting program called Positive Discipline and I am working towards my certification. My training in individual adult therapy is Adlerian and I use these concepts to help people feel understood, accepted and encouraged to become their true self.
