Cultural sensitivity is being aware that cultural differences and similarities between people exist without assigning them a value – positive or negative, better or worse, right or wrong.
Family / Marital
The grounds of marital and family status intersect to cover a range of family forms, including lone parent and blended families, as well as families where the parents are in a ‘common law’ relationship.
L'IFS (Internal Family Systems) est un outil thérapeutique qui amène à prendre conscience des différentes personnalités qui nous animent. L'intention est de créer une relation de confiance entre l'Être (ou Self) de la personne et les différents aspects qui la composent.
What is play therapy? Play therapy is a form of therapy used primarily for children. That’s because children may not be able to process their own emotions or articulate problems to parents or other adults.
While it may look like an ordinary playtime, play therapy can be much more than that.
Solution Focused Brief (SFBT)
Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), also called Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT) was developed by Steve de Shazer (1940-2005), and Insoo Kim Berg (1934-2007) in collaboration with their colleagues at the Milwaukee Brief Family Therapy Center beginning in the late 1970s. As the name suggests, SFBT is future-focused, goal-directed, and focuses on solutions, rather than on the problems that brought clients to seek therapy.
Structural Family Therapy
Structural family therapy (SFT) is a type of family therapy that looks at the structure of a family unit and improves the interactions between family members. 1 This approach to therapy was originally developed by Salvador Minuchin and has become one of the dominant forms of family intervention.

As a play therapist and family therapist, I find that healing is a family affair, and, I include parents as an integral part of their child's therapy. I specialize in trauma, attachment, adoption, blended families, difficult and severe behaviors, as well as parenting, and issues stemming from any and all of the above. I love working with children and their parents and families. Children seem to have an innate sense of what needs to happen in order for healing to occur, and, when given the opportunity, are able to shift and change. When parents become involved, the whole family can shift.
Young children communicate differently from older children and adults. They communicate energetically and through their play. For them, toys are words and play is language. I am fluent in the language of play, and fluent in the language of parents. I encourage parents to learn their child’s language to have a greater sense of what’s being communicated.
I facilitate workshops and present to groups of parents, educators and therapists around the world on a variety of topics. I also lead parenting groups for parents of children of all kinds and ages.
