I am an experienced school counselor with 25+ years in the public-school system. I have worked with children ages 5 and older. During those years, I have helped children and parents navigate through anxiety, depression, divorce, family changes, traumatic and various other life experiences. Children often handle events different than adults. I use an eclectic approach when working with children. The tools I use often include art, sand, and play as those are less threatening to children than having to “talk” about what is happening.
In addition to working with children, I am available to consult with parents going through the diagnosis and evaluation process with schools. I can help navigate the Individual Education Plan (IEP) process.
I am also working towards a Doctorate degree in Community Counseling with an emphasis in Trauma.
I am excited to create this private practice and be able to provide H.O.P.E. and Solutions for you!
