I have extensive training in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) and have been using it in my practice for over 15 years. It is appropriate treatment for children ages 2 through 8, but I often use components of it with older children, as it is a very effective therapy. I have come to evolve a DBT Integrated Play Therapy approach to treat children with trauma dynamics and emotional dysregulation issues. Allowing them to learn to stress map their bodies and learn to self-soothe. In addition, the child is regularly validated and self-esteem can grow and improve.

Young children need support navigating their emotions as much as adults do, maybe even more. But the way children learn and cope with their emotions is different than adults. It requires translation from the adult understanding to the child’s language and there back again. I’m here to work with your child to find their way of navigating the world with stability and balance.

After 11 years of working with children, I find it more effective to work with you, the parent. This is not because you are responsible for the way your child is behaving or what your child is going through, but because you have the most positive power and influence in your child's life. If I can use what I know through education and experience to empower you the parent to connect to your child, it will be more impactful and long lasting than if I spend therapy sessions with them. Your child will also find healing through their relationship with you, increasing trust, and strengthening your relationship for the present and future. You will have your Parenting Power back, stronger than ever!
