Do you struggle to interact and connect with your child? Does your child struggle with communication? Maybe they’re having a hard time connecting with other children their age, starting to act out, suffering from past trauma, or just don’t seem like themselves. No matter what your child is experiencing, I’m here to help. I have worked with many children struggling with depression, anxiety, and trauma. Growing up, my family was heavily involved in the Foster Care system. I have been around adopted children all my life and understand the complex emotions and situations they experience. Every child deserves to be happy, confident and loved. I also have experience working with individual adults who suffer from anxiety, depression, and trauma.
When we work together, I will meet you and your children where you’re at in life, with complete, genuine love. Everyone deserves to be loved and have someone they can talk to and trust. Learning to trust new people can be challenging, especially when there is past trauma preventing us from doing so. I will work with you and your children at a pace that best suits you, so we can build comfort and trust in one another. If you wish to incorporate spirituality into your or your child’s journey, I am more than comfortable walking alongside you with that.
Together we will work on whatever you and your child need to feel whole. We’ll take an individualistic approach tailored completely to you and your child’s experiences. We can try as many techniques as necessary to help you reach your goals, including play therapy for your children. I want to help show you and your children that the world is not a big, bad, and scary place. Let’s work together to overcome fears and find hope in the dark.
