As a school counselor I have had years of experience working with children in an academic setting. This experience has helped me learn how to connect with kids in a way many other counselors struggle doing. This helps me have a better context for how to help them children interact with their friends, parents, and family. As a father of 4 children I also have the context of "Dad" to offer to those that I meet with. This personal and practical experience is something that can not be learned in books or duplicated in camps. Parenting is hard work at times! If you need help with your child get in touch with me and we can talk about your needs and how I can help!

Children hold a special place in my heart. Having raised four, I know this from experience – When our kids hurt, we hurt. Aware that I am caring for your heart and soul, I attend to both you and your child with special care. Experienced with children ages 7-18 years, I utilize play, EMDR and equine-assisted pychotherapy for issues such as anxiety, trauma and abuse, depression, ADHD, impulse control, anger, aggression, bullying, academic under/over-achievement, adoption, as well as life transitions including loss of loved one, separation, divorce and blending families. Partnering with horses is a powerful,way to help children and teens heal.

Teens and children have unique needs in therapy. They want to be heard and validated. One very important aspect of therapy with children is to facilitate a trusting therapeutic relationship with the child to nurture safety. Only then will the child be able to open up and express difficult emotions and experiences. With children, I specialize in assessing for ADHD, working through traumatic experiences, anxiety/panic or OCD, adoption challanges, family changes and other behavioral issues.

With young children who have had specific traumatic incidents happen to them, EMDR has proven to be extremely helpful. For instance a child who has experienced a fire, automobile accident, death of a family pet, etc. we can move through the event and take the "punch" out of the event. The child will still remember the event, but not with the terror like they first experienced.
