I provide play therapy and counseling services to children, adolescents, and their families. I feel privileged to work with children and help them to heal emotionally, repair relationships, and improve daily functioning. I believe that all children possess the inner resources to heal themselves. I also believe that play therapy, family support, and the child's relationship with the therapist, best enable children to access those inner resources so they can heal, move forward, and be successful.
As a Registered Play Therapist (RPT), I have received extensive education, training, and supervision in the field of play therapy, child development, and psychological disorders often diagnosed in childhood. I also specialize in clinical mental health and I am a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC).
I am the only registered play therapist in private practice in the Arkansas River Valley area. I look forward to working with you and your child!
