More About Me

I believe that when someone seeks to have their needs met, they are not trying to cause harm to anyone else in the process. This is especially true for children and teens. Every single child deserves to feel welcome, wanted, and safe in their lives. I am passionate about child development and providing support for children and teens at all stages of development. I use play therapy and geek therapy to encourage my clients to practice coping skills and tools for the most demanding challenges that arise during times of adversity.

For example, clients in my Dungeons and Dragons group settings will have the opportunity to explore skills and tools for overcoming executive function challenges, depression, anxiety, ADHD, autism, and trauma by practicing them in real-time while developing their characters and exploring the fictional world. I use video games and tabletop games to help clients face challenges and overwhelming emotions. I love helping families reconnect with each other through play. Healing starts at home, and I help my clients find a home within themselves that they can always return to.
