Children and adolescent therapy
As a nurse with 15 years of pediatric experience I especially love to work with children and adolescents. I have learned to communicate well with them often using mediums such as play, arts and crafts or music, I enjoy helping the client to verbalize what they are having a hard time communicating. I have found the use of sand tray therapy to be especially helpful in allowing the client to put words to their thoughts or memories.
I previously worked as an intern in a children's group home and found that I have a special interest in working with adolescents who are having a hard time finding their place in this world. I have learned how to build trusting relationships with those who are often difficult to get to know. I enjoy working with older teens who are making the transition into becoming an adult and learning the skills of independent living.
