I work with young children in the context of their family dynamic. The greatest effect on the development of children are the family relationships, and then the relationships outside the family. It is powerfully transformative and healing to work in the family context to bring about healing and growing relationships. When that happens, everyone benefits.

Children have a developmental need to play. Children of divorce experience grief and loss and benefit from play and recognition of feelings & emotions.My work helps reinforce attention, focus & "on task" behavior. We do role plays/ improvs, creative arts, music & sensory integration. I assist children in recognition & practice of appropriate social skills to increase peer success at home & at school. I collaborate with teachers,school staff and parents to utilize a team-approach. Students who have academic challenges most often experience anxiety, depression and/or social struggles, I work with the family to enhance skill deficits and provide support to child and their family.

As a Family Therapist I frequently deal with the stresses that marital conflicts have on the rest of the family. The impact of these difficulties on the kids often results in behavioral problems that further stress the already burdened couple. I can help to relieve the stresses on the family system by listening to each child carefully and with empathy for her plight. When compassionate listening is provided to children in the presence of other family members, healing begins.

Our services include: effective parenting techniques for your child’s unique personality, anger management, behavior modification, divorce support, anxiety, depression, overcoming fears, social development, and issues at school. Depending on the age of the child, we often incorporate play therapy to communicate with children in their own language. We use puppets, dolls, clay, drawing, as well as a variety of therapy games to help children identify what is upsetting
