I have had the privilege to witness many people finding freedom, some even more than could be imagined. Together we can look at your unique needs and stressors, and then develop a plan specific to your unique challenges and strengths. Make the choice to have life hurt less, feel more manageable, be less stressed, and feel more free. Together we'll journey to help you live a more abundant, prosperous and satisfying life."

Understanding Your Therapy

Child Therapy

Therapy or counseling is available for children 5-and above. My mission is to help the children and families served reach their maximum potential in a positive, loving and nurturing environment. Using puppets (if the child wishes) to encourage interaction, provides opportunities that encourage children to open up about sensitive issues, allowing insight into the needs of the child, and giving me the means of developing a relationship of trust with the child to further therapy. Parental participation is essential to the process.

There may be times in this process when feelings of unhappiness, anger, anxiety or tension may increase for a short time. Yet, the overall goal is to lessen your painful symptoms and introduce you to the joy of living freely, perhaps for the first time.

It is my commitment to offer your child care, give constructive feedback, and to maintain confidentiality. It is your commitment to attend scheduled appointments, to be active and open in the process, to practice new skills for coping, to follow any medication regime that is part of your overall wellness, and to pay fees at the time of service.

There are specific times to seek child psychotherapy, like during transitions: such as when a family is experiencing the stress of separation/widowhood or divorce. Or, perhaps there are school related stressors or relationship related issues that require you or your child's specific needs for growth. See specialties to determine if your issue/concern is listed.

I find it a privilege to journey with the clientele I have served over the past 13 years as a psychotherapist. And, I bring 25 years of experience as an educator, caregiver, administrator, retreat directress, workshop leader (see my resume for details) and co-journeyer to support your unique healing process. Come join me as together we seek Freedom Through Psychotherapy: Transforming Lives, Healing Hearts.
