Working from a strength based, client centered, trauma informed lens, I believe that a person is the expert of their own life, but sometimes may lose their way.

I have a room just for the young and the young at heart.
Filled with puppets, books, games, miniatures for the sand tray, and so much more.
This is a safe place your child can recreate their world to figure life out with guidance.

Perfect for children or people who find it hard to express their feelings or find it difficult to make eye contact while talking about their problems, it can reduce the anxiety and fear of coming to the office.

The potential benefits are too numerous to list, but include relaxation, mindfulness, and can help with trauma, aggression, anger, depression, anxiety, abuse, to name a few.
Using figurines, your child can work out their feelings and dilemmas with guidance.

It is also my mother's favorite!
