Childhood is a time of tremendous growth and change and sometimes this can get a little overwhelming for children and their families. We're here to help children get back on the path towards growth and development. We tailor our treatment to the developmental level of each child and utilize individual counseling, play therapy, and family therapy approaches to address emotional, psychological, and behavioral issues. Some common concerns we help with include ADHD, anxiety, low self-esteem, emotional difficulties, and social difficulties. We also offer parent behavior management training to help parents address behavioral issues such as temper tantrums, defiance, and aggression.

Some of my most enjoyable sessions are when I get to use play therapy or sand play to help a child overcome sadness, irritability, abuse, abandonment, divorce of parents or some other diagnosis. Children are amazingly resilient and can make great progress toward positive mental health.

My work with children and adolescents always includes interventions for helping parents.

Sadly, I am seeing younger and younger children coming into therapy with eating disorders. I work with a family based model to help families learn the skills required to intervene to help children begin road to recovery. Frequently, exposure therapy is a big piece of this work where families work with me to learn ways to re-introduce foods back into the child's meal plan.

Therapy with a young child is often a multi-tiered approach. Part of the process focuses on fostering a sense of comfort, support, and understanding for the child who may be feeling frustrated, unsuccessful, anxious, or depressed about life circumstances. Therapy also incorporates strategies for aiding the child to make behavioral changes in areas where he or she is currently struggling. Finally, therapy brings parents into the process by helping them gain a comprehensive understanding of what drives their child, and how they can then direct their child in more adaptive ways which allot for more successful life experiences.

I use psycho-education and parenting feedback to assist parenting in gaining more control in the home and make interactions more positive for the family as a whole.
