I work primarily with four populations:

1. Little Kids

2. Big Kids

3. Grown-Ups

4. Families

They are characterized as follows:

Little Kids 

These are the youngest of potential clients, ranging from toddlers to pre-teens. I am a Registered Play Therapist™, trained in facilitating a child’s natural inclination to play as a modality for therapy. This is particularly effective with children under 8 years old, a rapid developmental period during which children have not acquired the verbal capacity to sufficiently identify and communicate their needs. I specialize in the treatment of child trauma; nonverbal communication is often less threatening and promotes a child’s innate capacity to process and grow.

Big Kids 

Individuals ranging from 18 to 30(ish) confronted with a myriad of challenges known collectively as “adulting.” Complaints may consist of anxiety, depression, messy relationships, and a general confusion about what to do with one’s life.

Grown-Ups 

Upon conquering the obstacles of adulthood, Grown-Ups frequently experience disillusionment with their previous concept of a meaningful life, and struggle to maintain a sense of identity and security while modifying their expectations for the future.

Families 

My work with children has led inevitably to work with parents and couples of many different types. I do not offer an opinion about how a couple functions. I do not decide if they stay together or separate. My priority is the safety of each individual, mental and physical; the individuals decide how to function effectively as a couple. Children are significantly affected by conflict between caregivers; parenting strategies will be integrated with relational therapy to ensure that the entire family system is functioning in a cohesive and healthy manner.
