I have worked with young children for 27 years as a special education teacher. I learned ways of helping them be successful. My internship was counseling young children at a private school that was created to help children with learning problems. Many children I counseled had more than one disability. I realize that it is not easy to raise a child who has the extra burden of coping with a disability or an emotional disorder, but there are many things a parent can do to help their child. I can teach you these ways. I take children from 12-17 years of age.

Many times, child therapists overdo the family system in their quest to seek effective solutions for emotional, learning or behavioral concerns with young children. And many times doctors overpathologize issues that shouldn’t be medicated necessarily. This leaves parents wondering what is the best route for their child? Introducing brainwave optimization technology. A fast, effective, natural, and less expensive way to allow your child's brain to make the optimizing changes it desires to make---on its own! Without any external force, opinion, medication, diagnostic, etc. Contact or 877-606-6161.

I have experienced much success working with children diagnosed with ADHD, ODD, Depression, Anxiety and Bipolar. Children are unique in that they are easily engaged in therapy once a good therapeutic relationship can be established. Children find it easy to relate to my motherly but firm approach to encouraging changes in their behavior. I have many tools and techniques at my disposal and do not find it beneath me to get down on the floor and meet them where they are. In addition to parental training, I also provide school visits and meetings with staff and teachers to ensure that what the child his learning in therapy is reinforced at home and school.
