The practice of therapy to help children succeed is a collaboration between the parentsand the therapist. I can help you to help your child, and you can help me to help your child. The first appointment is usually just with the parent(s) or other guardian(s) so we can discuss your concerns and issues appropriate for adult discussion. The second session is generally with both the child and parents. The following sessions I might meet just with your child for a time or two. By the third or fourth appointment you and your child should feel comfortable and optimistic about therapy. At this point we will have decided on your goals and have a plan for services.

Quality parent-child relationships are ones that are mutually enriching and promote the emotional, mental growth of children and parents alike. Parents often need skills to gain the cooperation and mutual respect of their children, to be more effecting correcting problem behaviors. They need to know how to create an environment for emotionally safe, positive and open communications -- which builds healthy relationships. Therapy can support parents to set firm limits yet avoid punitive tactics, resolving conflicts in ways that empower children to cooperate and parents to transform conflict into growth and trust, and motive children to willingly contribute and maximize potential.
