I love working with children, teens, adults, couples and families! I do play therapy for children with Trauma (including medical trauma). I work with grief and abuse issues. I have worked extensively with PTSD. I am very comfortable with complicated family systems. I am very respectful of each person's uniqueness. I consider myself a spiritual person and do not have an agenda with clients.
Experiential Play Therapy for Children with behavioral issues as a result of trauma. EMDR treatment for abuse and trauma survivors of all ages. Deep understanding of Couple and Family dynamics. Experience as a child and adult with ADD. I am also a Reiki Master.
My first career was in hospitals, so I am comfortable with the medical world. I grew up in a Military family and so am sensitive to their special needs. I have worked inside in-patient psychiatric settings and I have worked hospice as well.
