Individualized Approach

Support That Makes a Difference

Play Therapy for Children

Play is the language a child uses to share their world and emotions. I use techniques from brain-based play therapy as well as child centered approaches. Part of the counseling  process involves regularly communicating with the child's caregiver

 in order to collaborate on how to effectively support their child.

 Adolescent/Teen Counseling

 

Being a teen in today's world brings many new experiences along with physical, emotional, social and academic changes.  This can cause a lot of stress which may be overwhelming and scary to navigate.  Often teens need  to get support in a safe, nonjudgmental place.  I aim to listen first in order to understand their perspective and their world. I tailor my approach in order to best fit each individual. Talking, drawing, bibliotherapy, art, sand trays and music are just a few methods I may incorporate in counseling.

Parenting Support

Parenting is hard work. There are all kinds of approaches to parenting which can get overwhelming and confusing at times. And a solution that worked for one child may not work for a child with a different temperament. It's helpful to have a neutral person add another set of eyes to your situation.  My job is to offer insight and to help with finding tools and techniques to help your family function better.

Women's Counseling

I enjoy counseling with women of all ages. There are many reasons women may need extra support. Here are some issues I often work with:

 family of origin issues, relationship patterns, individual identity issues, anxiety, depression, grief, loss, setting boundaries, advocating for self.
