As a Registered Play Therapist, I love helping kids tap into emotions they may not yet have the words to express. By creating a safe environment, where a kid can use their natural ability to express themselves through play, we’re able to reach places that normal talk therapy often misses. Whether they’re acting out at school, having a tough time adjusting to the loss of a loved one, or adjusting to their parents divorce, play therapy can help them gain mastery over the emotions and provide insight for caregivers. Parents can be included in the process as needed.
I’ve got a big heart for kids going through adoption, adjusting to new living arrangements, and dealing with any kind of trauma. As both a parent myself, as well as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I also guide parents towards practical solutions they can use outside of session.
