Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy

Being a kid is hard.  Being a teenager is even harder!  There are so many rules to follow, expectations to meet, weird changes happening (both physically and mentally!) and who even knows how to deal with stuff like bullying, divorce, relocation, grief/loss, trauma, or any other stressful life event!  Through Play Therapy, children, preteens, and teens can learn how to better understand and cope with difficult situations in a way that fits their developmental needs.  I help children sort through a variety of issues, from anxiety, sadness, and anger to behavioral problems at home or school.  I work with you, the parent who knows their child best, to help your child heal.  Learn more by visiting the Play Therapy page to learn more about the therapeutic powers of play.
