Children Play and Art Therapy

Children between the ages of 4 and 12 are able to better express and heal through art and play therapy. Play and art therapy is healing for children with behavioral and emotional issues such as bullying, being bullied, trauma, loss, conflict, divorce, anxiety and depression. I use an attachment based model to act as a safe and secure base for your child.

Therapy for Teenagers

Teenagers undergo unique societal and academic pressures. Teenagers who are feeling lost, rejected, isolated or confused about who they are might resort to drugs, self-harm or crime. Often teenagers require a safe space outside of the home where they can express and find themselves. I provide this space by allowing the teenager to feel unconditional positive regard.

Individual Talk Therapy

Your mental health is key to leading a happy and fulfilled life. Talking to a therapist can be helpful because it is in a safe and non-judgmental environment. This type of environment allows you to feel free to express your emotions, desires and stresses without it damaging your self-esteem or relationships with others. Speaking to a therapist can enable you to understand yourself and others better.

Therapy for the Family

The family is the most important social support system. As a family you might find yourself in a place of conflict or in a place of loss. It is time to seek help if your family has communication problems, conflict, anxiety, depression, child custody disputes, loss of a family member or loss of a close other. My goal is to enable the families to heal within themselves, finding security and safety within the family unit.
