Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Our fast paced, media filled culture can make family life confusing and difficult. Getting through the day to day family routine can quickly become stressful, having a different impact on various family members. Families sometimes feel the need to explore new communication and coping strategies to evolve with the ages and situations of the family members. I have worked with children, teens, and families through volunteer organizations and schools for over 20 years, while raising my children. I enjoy helping families and children discover their 'spark,' strengthen their coping skills, and discover inner calm. My therapy techniques focus on providing a child/teen a sense of trust and safe place to take a break from life. This space allows them to explore coping strategies that will work for them during difficult situations. I can provide support and coaching to parents as well. I can work with children and families pre-school age and up. I am strengthening my skill in the Spanish language and can converse with children during play. I offer art therapy, sand tray play, and many modalities of play therapy, in addition to family/parent coaching.
