I trained with the experts in the field of play therapy. In my office we use a sand tray, puppets and story telling. These clinical tools help children speak without words and uses their primary language, the language of play. I help your child get unstuck and get back to being the wonderful children they are.
24 Years Experience
Licensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW
As a high school teacher for over twenty years, a mother of four teens, and an In Home Clinician working with children and adolescents for five years, I like to say that I speak fluent teen. These formative years are met with some many obstacles; mentally, physically, academically, and personally. Navigating one's way during this time can be confusing, and we all know that "parents just don't understand." I start by building rapport and helping your child to acknowledge their struggles and then we work together to find ways to overcome them in a supportive and understanding space.
