Counselor, MEd, CATP
Have you ever felt like you wish you knew how to help your kids with their big feelings? We all need a little help from time to time, and I’m passionate about helping kids work through their feelings, traumas, and grief in a fun, playful way. I have been an elementary school counselor for 20+ years and in those years have had the privilege of helping many children and their families learn how to navigate developmental issues, depression, anxiety, ADHD, gender identity, traumas, learn about their brains, coping skills, and so much more, all while having fun and playing, which is the way kids learn, work, and process. I am also trained in EMDR and Ego States, and am a Certified Child and Adolescent Trauma Practitioner. I use play, brain based interventions, mindfulness, expressive arts, Sand Tray, and EMDR to help children explore and learn about themselves and feel empowered to tackle their “stuff” with more confidence. I believe in the power of proactive intervention and that if we can give our kids the gift of therapy in a playful, early way, we are setting them up for so much success throughout their whole lives. I will be completing my residency at Heart and Mind under the supervision of Amy Reamer, LMFT, RPT-S. It’s my honor to get to work with you and your kids, and I’m so excited to help your family grow and thrive together!
