I have 10 plus years of experience treating a variety of mental health issues with all ages. My primary focus has been treating children and adolescents who have experienced severe trauma and been involved in the foster care system. I have extensive experience in treating a multitude of other mental health illnesses including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorders, posttraumatic stress disorder and adjustment disorders.

I am a Foundational Theraplay Practitioner, an attachment based therapy that focuses on co-regulation techniques through the use of play. This form of therapy is great to use with individuals who have suffered neglect in early years, and can be successful throughout adult ages. Please contact me if you have any questions about Theraplay.
