Childhood is a time of tremendous growth and change and sometimes this can get a little overwhelming for children and their families. We're here to help children get back on the path towards growth and development. We tailor our treatment to the developmental level of each child and utilize individual counseling, play therapy, and family therapy approaches to address emotional, psychological, and behavioral issues. Some common concerns we help with include ADHD, anxiety, low self-esteem, emotional difficulties, and social difficulties. We also offer parent behavior management training to help parents address behavioral issues such as temper tantrums, defiance, and aggression.

Parents often bring their children to see me for symptoms of anxiety, anger management, school and/or behavioral concerns, and obsessive compulsive disorder. I love working with children and am often impressed by how resilient they are and how quickly they respond to our work together. I always involve parents in the therapy process for some of each session. Please call me for a free 20 minute consult to discuss if your child's needs in advance of our first meeting.

Some of my most enjoyable sessions are when I get to use play therapy or sand play to help a child overcome sadness, hyperactivity, irritability, abuse, abandonment, divorce of parents or some other diagnosis. Children are amazingly resilient and can make great progress toward positive mental health. It is rewarding to help adult authority figures learn the value of listening, define the problem and work together to find workable solutions for their unique personality and situation. My work with children and adolescents always includes interventions for helping parents.
