As a Licensed Professional Counselor, Registered Play Therapist and educational consultant, I have spent thousands of hours working with children (ages 3 and up), their parents and educators for the past 12 years. My experience in working with difficult, noncompliant children has given me unique opportunities to develop comprehensive plans for encouraging emotional, social and educational growth in at-risk children.
I also provide individual and family counseling specializing in anxiety, mood disorders, trauma, and grief issues. In addition, I am a published author and have conducted national seminars on ADHD, Oppositional,Conduct, Bipolar, and Anxiety Disorders in children.
Play is the child's natural medium of communication, for optimal growth and development. Play therapy provides a safe environment and the proper tools to allow children to explore their thoughts, feelings and experiences. It is my mission to create such an environment for children and their families.
