Do you find yourself dissatisfied with life? Are your children, relationships and career overwhelming? As a therapist, mom, and wife I have valuable experience and perspective on issues that cause distress in individuals and families.

 

I have counseled and advocated for adults, adolescents and children for 16 years. I bring experience working with trauma, issues that affect women, anxiety and depression, grief, stress management, life transitions, parenting, and relationship issues. 


Although no single approach is effective for everyone, through careful evaluation and partnership we can find what works best for you. My therapeutic approach is client centered, supportive and compassionate. Together we will build upon your personal strengths and enhance your ability to navigate life transitions and hardships. I can help you find balance, remember who you are and discover a future full of hope, happiness, and wellbeing. 


I hold a Masters Degree in Clinical Social Work from Florida State University and am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) and a member of the Association for Play Therapy. 


I have openings during the day and evening and look forward to working with you and your family.

“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.” Plato


I have enjoyed counseling, playing with and learning from children, adolescents and their grown ups for the past twenty years.  As a mother and therapist, I understand the magic and challenges of childhood and parenting and the not so magical struggles that children and their families face. In the overwhelming confusion, we can lose sight of all the things we are doing right for ourselves and our families. Through gentleness, compassion, and empathy, I can help you find the answers already inside of you and your child, experience joy in one another, strengthen the bond in your relationship, and have fun while doing so.  I draw upon multiple creative approaches including play therapy, art therapy, and person centered practices to meet Individuals of all ages where they are, help them find their answers within, achieve goals and thrive in their lives and relationships.  


I received my Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work from Florida State University and am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker as well as a member of the Association for Play Therapy. I have worked with a wide array of social, emotional and behavioral issues affecting children and adolescents in schools, homes, foster homes and outpatient settings. I also assist adults with childhood trauma, depression, anxiety, body image issues and life transitions.


I offer daytime and evening appointments and look forward to working together with you to create wellbeing and delight in your life.
