About my practice:

 As a clinical social worker and registered play therapist with over ten years of experience, I provide clients of all ages and their families with psychotherapy, play therapy, and case management services.   My goal is to help you consider what difficulties you are facing and how you can strengthen social and coping skills on many levels.  After listening carefully, I use practical counseling skills, play therapy techniques, and therapeutic strategies to approach challenging social, emotional, or behavioral problems.  The areas in which I have particular expertise include:

  • Disabilities and special needs (including autism spectrum disorders and Asperger’s Syndrome)
  • Grief/death/serious illness
  • School issues (including IEPs and special education)
  • Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE)
  • Coordinating treatment plans with school teams
  • Difficult family relationships
  • Child Centered Play Therapy
  • Play Therapy as a way to work with clients for whom traditional talk therapy is not a fit (such as adult clients with developmental disabilities or children and adolescents who like expressive arts activities)
  • Parenting
  • Depression/anxiety/mood regulation
  • Transitioning to adulthood
  • Caregiver, parent, or teacher stress, self-care, and burn-out
  • Understanding and navigating local, state, and federal resources for complex educational, disability, or medical needs
