My specialty has been working with children 0-6 and their families, but I am offering nature-based therapy to children and youth of all ages and their families, and to adults who are especially interested in working with nature as a therapeutic partner. I can also provide parent psychotherapy for adults who are expecting children or are currently parenting and wish to dive deeper and work more intensely towards their own goals.
Issues we can address include: attention and regulation problems, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, trauma, and attachment/relationship difficulties.
This therapy can be an alternative to office based therapy/Telehealth OR could be an additional therapy if more intensity and frequency is need to address a child’s needs.
Nature Play therapeutic groups for children and families may be offered in the future.
Services can be provided in Spanish as well as English.
