Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Registered Play Therapist


Hi, I’m Andrea, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Registered Play Therapist.  Having worked in a variety of mental health settings and within the public school system, I have 18 years of experience with children, adolescents, and families.  My passion is helping children and families discover and build upon their strengths and abilities in order to overcome obstacles, learn new skills, and establish healthy relationships. I believe the therapy process should be engaging and collaborative.  I strive to build relationships based on acceptance in a safe and supportive environment. 


I utilize an integrative therapeutic approach that is strengths based and goal oriented.  Working with children, I use play and talk therapy to help them manage emotions and behaviors such as anger, anxiety, fear, restlessness, sadness, school and social issues, and stress.  I specialize in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Trauma & Resilience Therapy, Play Therapy including sandtray and Theraplay techniques, and Mindfulness practices. 


As a former School Social Worker, I have extensive knowledge of school related issues, including Special Education, and can help navigate the educational system.  My ability to collaborate with teachers and school support staff can help reinforce the skills and strategies being learned in therapy.


Finding the right therapist is crucial to the therapeutic process.  I am here to partner with you to help your child and/or family develop the skills needed to be happy and healthy.  I love the work I do and consider it a privilege to be of assistance.
