She has experience providing individual and group therapy, parent/caregiver training, and supervision within clinical, school, and community settings. Believing in a collaborative approach, she is thrilled to be joining the Play Works multidisciplinary team where she will have the privilege of providing comprehensive treatment alongside other professionals to ensure the most optimal outcomes for each child.
