Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I work with children, adolescents, and their families during periods of turmoil. I will work to meet your family's needs by improving communication and teaching children safer and more positive ways of expressing their needs and coping with their feelings. I have training in play therapy. Play is how children express their feelings and ideas. Play also helps adolescents talk about things that might be uncomfortable. Using puppets, dolls, games, art, and toys, I provide a safe environment for your child to work through difficult emotions and build coping skills. I also co-facilitate Survivor To Thriver, a trauma support group for women who have been sexually assaulted or abused.
