Welcome to my counseling practice; Play therapy in Charlottesville, VA; counseling in Charlottesville, VA; child mental health; adolescent counseling; family counseling 
I have enjoyed a career providing counseling services to children and their families for a little over 20 years. I have worked with kids and families in their homes, within the school system, in residential treatment facilities, at community mental health centers, and now at my private practice. 
Child and family friendly waiting area: Child and family therapy in Charlottesville, VA; play therapy in Charlottesville, VA; adolescent counseling; child mental health therapyI believe that counseling can be an invaluable resource for people, of any age, who find themselves struggling. But I also realize that not everyone feels completely comfortable with the idea of counseling and may feel reluctant to talk with a therapist. I strive to make everyone who comes to my office feel relaxed, accepted, and hopeful that they can experience positive change.

I will partner with you and your child to help identify goals for counseling using an approach that is warm, genuine and respectful. My theoretical orientation is best described as client-centered but in order to provide an effective and individualize treatment plan I often incorporate strategies and interventions from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Play and other Expressive Therapies, Trauma-Informed Care, and Relationship Based Therapies. I'm happy to talk with you and answer any questions that you have about the counseling process. 
I look forward to talking with you!
