In my practice, I work with folks of all ages from children to adults. While I believe we are all parts of various systems in which we live……our own internal system, family systems, work systems, school systems, etc., I do believe that work in individual therapy can be extremely beneficial to helping us grow into the person we want to be.
Our work together, regardless of age, can include Expressive Arts, Sand Tray, Play Therapy and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). As we get to know each other and design a plan that is right for you, we will discuss various modalities that you may find beneficial.
As my practice is holistically based and highly individualized, there is always room for change and adaptation. I focus on overall well being to include your emotional balance, healthy lifestyle choices, matters of the heart and how your brain is impacted by earlier life experiences
When working with children, I prefer to meet with the child’s parents or primary caregivers and the child during the first session. It is important to have context for the entire environment that the child is living it. Together, we will take a collaborative approach to helping your child navigate the “ouchy” spots that are affecting their life. While your child is in session, please plan to stay in the waiting area to receive them immediately after session or join us in the therapy room as needed.
The stage between childhood and adulthood can bring be like a roller coaster for the young person and their family. I love working with teens and helping them begin to understand their own unique qualities and learn how to navigate their world. I look forward to helping you and your young person find peace and joy while on the ride of your lives through adolescence.
