Significant life events — such as the death of a family member, friend, or pet; divorce or a move; trauma; a parent leaving on military deployment; or a major illness in the family — can cause stress that might lead to problems with behavior, mood, sleep, appetite, and academic or social functioning. In some cases, it's not as clear what's caused a child to suddenly seem withdrawn, worried, stress, sulky, or tearful. But if you feel your child might have an emotional or behavioral problem or needs help coping with a difficult life event, it is worth checking. I have worked with children for 14 years and provide an environment in which parents and child feel at ease in exploring issues.

At times, parents find themselves challenged by the behaviors and difficulties of their children. These challenges may stem from a number of circumstances or experiences, such as adjustment difficulties related to a family move, marital or family discord, parental separation/divorce, being bullied, sibling rivalry, the death or suicide of a loved one, trauma, abuse, accidents, or academic challenges and learning difficulties. As a psychologist, I work with young children and their families to overcome these difficulties and assist parents in meeting the needs of their children more effectively; thereby facilitating attachment, increased relationship satisfaction, and family harmony.

I have always had an easy time relating to children. My experiences in education at all grades have allowed me to gain valuable experience and insight. I work hard to create a safe, caring environment for children to share their thoughts and feelings and even ask questions. Providing structure and boundaries at an early age can make parenting a more enjoyable experience during adolescence and beyond.

We work with young children in the presence of and in collaboration with the primary caregiver(s). Encouraging attunement, effective listening skills and awareness of development of growth patterns promotes secure attachment, the basis for healthy social, psychological and personal growth.
Especially in the context of developmental trauma and/or attachment injury the nearness of a steady caregiver as primary resource is indispensable to healing. Working with child and caregiver together provides the greatest potential for effective channels of comfort, predictable and steady structure, and confident interactions--essential and beneficial for the child in need.
