About Me

Therapy can be FUN, yes fun. Play is important, and we heal through creativity, even as adults who are healing the wounded child.

Brief About Me: Since 2018 I’ve been working in the mental health field as a CSW/LCSW. I have 30 years of professional childcare experience which has given me opportunities to work with children and their families. I’ve been a business owner since 1995 working from home or outsourcing services as a Licensed Massage Therapist/CranioSacral Therapist and a Self-published author. I’m detail-oriented and organized, able to see the small details and the big picture.

I believe in empowering the indomitable spirit of individuals to overcome even the most horrific challenges in life. Because we are human and live in a world filled with poor choices, illness, and accidents, all of us will feel a little broken at times. This is normal and can be a beautiful thing. As creative beings, we experience, process, and understand life through play and creativity. I use these natural processing techniques throughout the healing process for both children and adults.

Healing is unique and takes as much time as it takes for each individual. I feel it’s important to work with the client in achieving their short and long-term goals in a manner that best fits their needs and personality. I enjoy working with children, youth, and adults using Sandtray, Play, Creative Arts, and StoryPlay in therapy, and adding in CranioSacral Therapy and other techniques to support healing at a DNA level.

I have seen the value of these creative and energy processes for children with trauma backgrounds, sibling rivalry, adolescent mental illness, family issues, parent/child insights, and more. Being able to put one’s issues into a physical 2-or3-Dimensional space or replica can provide a new perspective to old issues which can lead to new solutions.
