Providing (only) Telehealth Services *Accepting New Clients*


To Request an Appointment please see the CONTACT ME page

For prospective clients, I offer a comfortable and safe space - using Telehealth- where we can navigate and work on challenging issues together. My goal is to help you feel more empowered, and I am here to offer support through every step of your journey. I specialize in the areas of: anxiety, trauma, phobias, grief/loss, and relational issues. My approach is tailored to meet your specific needs and goals. I draw from several techniques and modalities, including cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), guided imagery / Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), and more.

If you are really struggling and wanting some significant relief from symptoms, I can offer ART (Accelerated Resolution Therapy).  ART is an eye movement therapy based on EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), and is highly useful in rapidly reducing "triggers" and negative memories often connected to trauma, phobias, anxiety, relational conflict, or any distressing event. ART is best suited for adults as well as older children.  Please refer to the 'Services Provided' page for more information on ART.

I also offer Play Therapy consultation and supervision, for students and other mental health professionals. I am a Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor with over 15 years experience working with children and families. I have over 200 hours in play therapy-specific training - including 30 hours in the area of supervision for play therapists. Specific models of play therapy that I am trained in and have used include child-centered play therapy (CCPT), sand tray therapy, cognitive-based play therapy, and integrative play therapy (where I combine two or more models). I am also certified at the foundational level in Theraplay.  Please refer to the 'Services Provided' page for more information on clinical and professional services I offer.
