Welcome! I'm so glad you're here. I have over 20 years of experience working with individuals and families. I'm endorsed in Infant Mental Health and certified in Early Intervention. I've had extensive training in childhood trauma, adoption, developmental disabilities, parenting and perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.
Children communicate through their behavior. I'm here to help you make sense of what your children are trying to express and teach strategies that will help them develop positive coping skills and more control over their emotions. My work with children is play based and relationship focused. My style is warm, engaging and playful.
If you are pregnant or currently parenting and crave some time for yourself, this is also a safe place for you to come and work through some of the challenges that life has thrown your way. Parenting is hard, especially when you have challenging children or had a difficult childhood yourself. I will walk alongside you during your parenting journey, You don't have to go through it alone.
Early childhood educators, what an important, rewarding and challenging job you have! If you need extra support in the area of social-emotional development, I offer educator training on child development, challenging behaviors and trauma. I believe in a holistic, team approach and am available to consult with you about shared clients/students. Please reach out for more information and to schedule a training.
