Specialties and Strengths

SandPlay Therapy -

A form of therapy that allows a child to express the “inexpressible” using miniature figures in a tray of sand.

Since imagination and symbols develop before language skills, sandplay therapy is an excellent way for a therapist to help understand a person; especially when trust, trauma, age or language inhibits expression.

Psychoeducational Testing -

My practice focuses on assessments with children and adolescents. 

I administer certain tests to ’s  out how a person’s performance in school may be hindered by behaviors, emotions, and/or certain areas of intellectual functioning. 

For example, psychoeducational  evaluations are necessary to diagnose issues with learning or attentional diffculties.

Psychological Testing -

I also administer psychological assessments when there is a concern about a child’s mental or emotional health. 

For example,psychological assessments can be used for diagnosing mood disorders, behavior problems, disorganized thinking, or the emergence of personality issues in adolescents.
