Philosophy

I look at how children are developing at home, at school, with peers, and in other systems to help them function optimally within their environment. Children communicate best through play. Play therapy allows children to live out their true thoughts, feelings and experiences in a safe environment that supports growth and healing.

Personal Statement

One of my favorite quotes is by Anna Quindlen….’The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.’ I truly enjoy working with my clients and deem it a privilege that they allow me to work with them.
