I completed my Bachelor's Degree with a dual major in Psychology and Sociology from Central Michigan University in 1997. I then went on to complete my Master's Degree in Social Work from Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, MI. I moved to Fort Wayne in 2000 and I began working with children and teens. I had experience working with adults but discovered my passion was working with children and teens. I have focused primarily on treating this population since 2001.
I have experience working in a variety of settings. I have worked in a residential treatment center for teenage girls, I then worked for a therapeutic foster care agency for six years. In August of 2006, I joined a private practice as a child and family therapist and began specializing in play therapy. In 2015, I set out on my own in private practice.
I am a member of the Association for Play Therapy. In 2015, I received the highest designation offered through the association, Registered Play Therapy Supervisor. My training is constant and I believe in learning from the best to provide the best care.
I recently completed Level I Theraplay® training through the Theraplay®Institute in Chicago, IL. Theraplay® is a child and family based therapy for building and enhancing attachment, self-esteem, trust in others, and joyful engagement.
Treatment is tailored to each individual client and his/her family. I work with children ages 3-18.
I have worked with a wide range of childhood difficulties including:
