I am a Licensed Professional Therapist who specializes with children who struggle with behavior and adjustment, developmental and special needs, trauma, and everyday life issues which may hinder their success in school, home, and community. I also work with families to help them adjust to new situations which may cause a hindrance in their life- children who may have been diagnosed with RAD, ADHD, SPD, ASD and other alphabets that may be tacked to their names.
I have 20+ years of experience working with children and families in a variety of dynamics, social groups, and life choices. I have worked on the streets of Los Angeles and in the homes of the midwest. I use an electic mixture of therapies to include: person-centered, Theraplay, directed and non-directed play therapy, family solutions, and solution-focused to name a few.
I have 3 children who are grown and they have given me 8 adorable and unique grandchildren. I live in the Saint Louis area and enjoy outside time with my grandchildren.
