Meet Rose


I consider myself a lifelong learner who is always expanding my knowledge so I can offer the most effective healing methods to my clients. I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and adults.  My ability to form meaningful relationships with children create the foundation of my treatment success. Additionally, my deep passions for Experiential Play Therapy and Sandplay have been the focus of my treatment methods and my advanced study, consultation, teaching, and personal expertise.

Currently, I am pursuing certification as a Sandplay Teacher.  This very specific field of study allows me to teach other mental health practitioners the techniques that are known to be so successful for treatment.  I am working with an international team through the Association of Sandplay Therapy to achieve this goal.
