earth growth Many of the clients I have worked with over the years in mental health, school and private practice settings experienced trauma, anxiety, panic disorder, chronic stress, and fears/phobias that have impacted their daily functioning and relationships and have created a negative sense of Self. In our work together, the healing process focuses on alleviating symptoms and ultimately recovering the energy and vibrancy that is the True Self.

When working with children therapeutically, a holistic, child-centered approach is utilized and includes play and sand tray therapy alongside appropriate trauma-focused therapies including EMDR and the Flash Technique. Specialized child and adolescent training in EMDR has been conducted to ensure appropriate methods are used when working with children. Periodic parent coaching and guidance therapy are also an integral part of the therapy process. Many parents have reported that they felt more confident in their parenting after parent coaching sessions and that they developed a stronger relationship with their child.
