Raising children can be both rewarding and difficult at the same time. How can something so small seem to run the house? I will help you take back control of your house and your child. I will show you how to confidently create a structure that will cause your children to feel safe and learn to respect you. I will help improve your relationship with your child and guide you towards a more peaceful home. Being a parent is hard. You don't have to do it alone.

Children often do not know how to talk about things that are bothering them, which can be frustrating for parents who want to know how to help them. Luckily, children communicate all the time through how they play. This is also how they process through confusing, hurtful situations in their lives that are difficult for them to understand. In my office are three small boxes of toys and a small sand tray which all allow children to talk about themselves in a way that they are familiar with: fantasy and play. The time spent in my office will be helpful for your child, and as a therapist I can also help you as the parent know what to look for so that you can reach out to your child and help.
