I can clearly appreciate the need to insure that infants and young children have the best opportunities for healthy social, emotional cognitive and physical development. Therefore counseling young children is critical and focused on early intervention and parent support. I am professionally influenced by leading experts in the Zero to Three Network. I provide mental health services to children from birth to age 6 years. Parent concerns might include attachment issues; exposure to domestic violence, separation, loss, neglect ; and, severe environmental issues and other traumatic experiences. Contact me if you would like to schedule a consultation for your child or a parenting concern.

As a parent I understand the joy of seeing your child thrive and grow. I also know the heartbreak to see your child hurt or hurting. My work with child is based on showing them unconditional regard as a person, get to know them as individuals-their likes and dislikes, goals,,fears/concerns and what makes them laugh and smile. We discuss school and updates on tests, grades, friends, classes and what's needed to succeed or overcome a challenge. I invite them to help me help them. Usage of various items in the play therapy room helps them feel safe,in control and empowered. Hopefully these feelings will be internalized. Preference is to work with kids 8+. Will see <8 in special circumstances.
