Serving Children, Adolescents, and Families

I’m a mom of two young children, so spending my day on the floor playing with children is part of my regular day. I love playing with children because I get to see them transform, connect, grow and evolve right before my eyes. The time children spend playing is hard, ground-breaking work for them, and I feel lucky being able to do it alongside them.

In my play room, children choose with which toys they want to engage. From dress up clothes, and blocks to sand tray, swords, and a play kitchen, we sit on the floor together and spend our 40-45 minutes playing as a way for them to process through what is happening in their lives.

Qualifications

  • As a group counselor for Camp COPE I had the privilege of providing travelling the country providing fun, therapeutic activities for children whose parents or a loved one have been deployed or returned injured in the military.
  • At Journey of Hope, I helped children, teens and families who have lost a loved one to death.
  • As a crisis counselor to homeless, abused, or neglected teens who entered City House Shelter, I helped teens get up on their feet, feel support they’ve never had, and create a stable living environment for a lifetime.
  • I’m a graduate of University of North Texas, where world-renowned work is produced by some of the best researchers in the country.
  • I am a Registered Play Therapist, which means I have an extra designation which provides extra training above and beyond my Master level program.

I believe our life is altered from childhood from our own experience, impressions, and perceived successes and failures. In our sessions, I’ll offer suggestions on how to help your child reach your new goals.

My true passion is Child-Centered Play Therapy, and am a true believer in its process; however, when the need arises I am more directive. Getting parents involved very important in my work with your child.
