About Me

As an EMDR Certified and Registered Play Therapist™, I have specialized training that better helps adults, teenagers and children. This counseling style integrates creative and expressive arts which is different from the typical "talk therapy." In this restorative process, I utilize many modalities as EMDR, Play Therapy, Sand Therapy and/or Theraplay® principles to better help my clients reach the best version of themselves.
