Certified in various therapy modalities

I have various certifications to give you the best results.

Registered Play Therapist

Young children developmentally do not posses the vocabulary necessary to fully process complex challenges such as anxiety, depression, bullying, parental separation, and trauma.

For these children play therapy is recommended so that children can utilize toys as tools to express their emotions and receive validation. This form of therapy is grounded in humanistic and recogerían theories of behavioral intervention and is ideal for young children (ages 2-10).

This therapy gives children the safe space to express themselves and develop emotional resiliency. Treatment is delivered in one hour sessions over a period of approximately 10-20 weeks with clients reporting improvement within the first few weeks of treatment.

Parent-Child Interaction Therapy

Parent Child interaction therapy is an evidence-based form of Family Therapy designed to address behavior and attachment concerns in young children (ages 2-8).

This therapy trains and coaches parents to handle defiance and opposition in an effective manner. It also helps parents form and strengthen healthy attachments to their children through play and positive reinforcement.

This therapy involves a high degree of parent involvement. It also offers a fast response and high success rate. Treatment is delivered in one hour sessions over a period of 12-20 weeks with parents reporting improvement within the first three weeks of treatment.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy is an evidence-based Therapy treatment aimed at addressing a range of emotional disturbances including depression, anxiety, irritability, low self-worth, high stress, and negative thinking. This form of therapy involves a therapist working one on one with a client to identify the symptoms and beliefs that make clients feel stuck and supplying strategies to get unstuck. These strategies involve learning new coping skills, receiving education about symptoms, developing safety plans, and titrated exposure to traumatic memories. This therapy creates a sense of resiliency and renewal for those that have experienced loss, persecution, victimization, or other form of trauma. This form of therapy is appropriate for older children, adolescents, and adults. Clients report improvements within the first few weeks and length of treatment is dependent on each individual client.
