Owner, Child, Adolescent, and Young Adult Practitioner.
Registered Play Therapist™
2022 NASW-Arizona Social Worker of The Year
This is what I promise when you walk into my office you or your child will have a safe place to explore their feelings and emotions without judgment, and through their work with me, they will walk away with a better understanding of themselves. I believe that they really do have the answers and know how best to make the necessary changes in their lives. Sometimes, though, those answers are trapped and children can feel that they are unheard which can lead to behavioral problems and isolation. My entire career has been dedicated to working with children to ensure the best possible outcomes.
From my work as a tribal social worker to my current volunteer work as CASA, my number one goal is to ensure that your child and family are able to regain the confidence needed to be able to function once again as a healthy individual and a family unit.
I utilize CBT, Play Therapy, Shame Resiliency, and EMDR to achieve the goals we have set out together. I am a Certified Daring Way Facilitator and conduct Daring Way groups for women and young adults. I also conduct self-esteem and self-confidence groups for girls 3 times a year.
Seeking professional help can be a very humbling experience and I believe it is my job to not lead you on the journey but to walk beside you and your family
