For the child, play is serious, purposeful, and useful as a tool for knowing about the world. Play is essential for healthy developmental mentally, physically and socially. Play also serves as language for children, a practicing for life in which they can work through confusion, anxieties and conflicts. Play therapy is the treatment of choice for many of the problems children bring into treatment. As a play therapist I work with very young children and even incorporate play with teens, adults, and families.

Sometimes it's difficult to determine the dynamics which create conflict or problem in the family while in an office setting. During a home visit I observe and evaluate behaviors, to pinpoint what dynamic may need an intervention.


My training in School Psychology along with the many years I taught teacher prep students combined with my experience evaluating schools across the country for a research firm contributes to my expertise in classroom interactions. This experience is utilized to evaluate quality teaching as well as implementing strong interventions that work in the classroom. I work hard with the entire school system to create an integrated team to help support the child who may be struggling in their class or at their school.
