Children and Adolescents
I enjoy working with children and adolescents experiencing a range of difficult emotions. Ranging from self-regulation, ADHD, suicidal ideation, anxiety, to anger and aggression, I use play therapy and age-appropriate techniques to help children and adolescents express themselves during therapy. I also enjoy helping parents and guardians as they come to workable solutions and good outcomes in their homes for their children.
EMDR for Trauma/PTSD
I am trained in EMDR and other trauma focused techniques to work through trauma in whatever capacity you have experienced it. I am able to use EMDR with adults and children.
Perinatal Mental Health
Depression, anxiety, OCD and other mood disorders can onset during the perinatal period, not to mention the transitions in the family. I have specific training in this area to help families conquer the mental health challenges and transitions that often occur during the perinatal period
I am certified in Prepare-Enrich for those who are seeking to get married. For those seeking help as a couple to enrich their marriage, co-parent to strengthen their relationship I am a level 1 PACT (Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy) trained clinician.
Divorce, separation, and going between two homes can be incredibly challenging for parents and children. I enjoy working with families to come up with creative solutions as they navigate what is often a tricky time.
Depression and Anxiety
I gained much of my early experience working in a PHP program for children and adolescents that came from difficult places and many of them struggles with suicidal thoughts and some with self-harm. I am able to work with individuals (children and adults alike) who struggle in those areas and I am passionate about helping them get to better places.
