I work with children and families and adolescents. I do hypnotherapy and play therapy and sand tray therapy and I work in Claymont Delaware. I'm very approachable, kind,gentle, and flexible and friendly. I try to work around people's schedules even though I have my own busy family. I appreciate people who respect my schedule as well and will work with me one to one to arrange a working plan. I will do office, online or home visits depending on what is most needed. I take some insurance or will do self pay on a sliding scale.
what I really love about my work is that I have the opportunity to get to know different people, and to discover who they are as actual human beings. In my daily life I am restricted to the vantage point of my own personal and cultural experience. While the same is true with my work as a therapist I am in the unique position of being entrusted with another person or persons sacred experience. I am interested in staying attuned to people and fine tuning my own capabilities to discern their needs for healing or support in being of assistance.

I have a Masters degree in Social Work and licensed in PA and Delaware. I worked in Arizona and went to graduate school there so my cross cultural experience is somewhat specific to the cultural sensitivities of native southwestern people. I also worked in Montgomery county and Prince George and Howard county MD as a pre masters level worker so I know the urban culture of the DC metro area . I've worked with people across a broad spectrum of ages and in a wide range of settings but I do focus on children and families, individuals, and mainly on anxiety and mood disorders relationship issues . I'm interested in how people relate to each other and focus on improving the quality of lives for them selves and those around them and I deal with problems related to grief and loss. I deal with complex attachment problems often, i divorce and marital conflict , couples issues, relationships conflict, and acute and complex trauma. I work with people who have developmental issues and long term problems pain management. I generally do not turn someone away who wants help if they believe I can help them. That's the most important element. Some issues I do not work with. If I cannot help some one I'll tell them.
I charge what the standard rate is for what is competetitive so that I can be self respecting. I used to charge very low prices and then I would get taken advantage of. I figured out that I needed to charge the average rate and then if they can't pay I can offer a sliding scale. I take insurance including Medicaid.
