Resources & Health
I am listed in Psychology Today's referrals.
Keeping your children healthy in my play therapy room:
I disinfect my therapy room using THIEVES spray, a Young Living essential oil blend containing clove, frankinsense, cinnamon and other antimicrobial essential oils. In addition to our weekly cleaning service, I do a deeper cleaning of toys and all surfaces regularly. Doing what I can to keep your children, and myself, healthy. If your child has any sensitivities or allergies, please let me know immediately. On occasion I will diffuse the therapeutic-grade essential oil of LAVENDER as well.
Only natural cleaning products are used.
My office and play room is built with only eco-friendly products,
clean ducting for heat and air conditioning. 20% outdoor fresh air filtered and recirculating, with lots of natural light.

First, and foremost, while there may be some overlap with respect to treatments for a variety of developmental conditions or delays, it is important to be as specific as possible to address the needs of your child and to target the interventions that will have the greatest effect (at their particular stage of development."
