My name is Evelyn. I am a licensed professional counselor and psychotherapist. I specialize in working with young children and their caregivers. But I also work with couples, individuals, and anyone else in need of therapy. I am trained in child and parent psychotherapy, a model that helps families heal from traumatic experiences, and ABA therapy, a behavioral therapy used primarily in the treatment of autism spectrum disorder and behavioral problems. My goal is to help families understand one another and build healthy enduring bonds through various means including play therapy.
I provide a warm, inviting, non-threatening environment where clients can explore their feelings and feel comfortable talking about challenges from the past, present, or concerns regarding the future.
In session, we will address issues preventing families from maintaining a strong functioning emotionally safe home environment. These include issues of trauma, behavioral management, adoption, blended families, and developmental issues, to name a few. I am also skilled in working with children and adults with Autism and other developmental disabilities as well as couples and individuals.
My approach to therapy is eclectic. I pull from many different theories to tailor and customize a treatment plan just for you. Including psychodynamic theories, developmental psychology, and CBT. I use a trauma-informed lens with each client and recognize each client is different and amazing.
I believe it’s never too early to start the healing process. Trauma can affect people of all age groups, including children. I specialize in working with children ages 0-6 and their families to heal these traumas and get back to just being a kid.
