I have worked extensively with children for over 19 years. I am proud to be a nationally certified Parents as Teachers educator that enhances my interactions with the child and parent. I have been fortunate to work with children who are aggressive, cast aside and misunderstood. I am certified to work with children with inappropriate sexual behaviors and proud to serve that population. I approach dealing with children with a great deal of joy that makes them feel non-judged and important. I treat children from ages 3-18.

Children & Adolescents I love helping children, teens, and parents through early life issues. A balanced child will enjoy much greater success in relationships and performance. I have been blessed to work with numerous children with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) as we work on growing focus abilities and learning to act more age appropriate. Younger children respond well to play therapy and look forward to sessions with me. Teens have responded well to working through issues while being treated with respect and compassion.

I work with parents to help them feel more confident about parenting their young children. You can learn to fully participate and enjoy these years that will soon be a memory. Parenting is a difficult job but also a very rewarding one. You can learn to empathize more with your child and create a parenting style that works most effectively for you.

Psychological Associate, Clinical Mental Health Counselor, Board Certified Telemental Health Provider

In 28262 - Nearby to Statesville.

For 15 years I was the staff psychologist for a program serving children, ages birth to six, who were at risk for or experiencing problems with social-emotional development. I worked with children individually in play therapy and provided parent-child intervention therapy to help parents enhance their child’s secure attachment. In the absence of a play therapy room, I do not accept children as Telemental health clients, but I do offer consultation to NC parents of young children regarding their child’s social and emotional health. To be clear, the service is parent consultation and not child or adult therapy. I was trained in and rely on Attachment theory, Filial Therapy and the Circle of Security model to guide the parent consultation.

Male teens are getting into emotional and social difficulties through sex ting, pornography, sending personal photos to each other and early sexual encounters. Parents should realize that these early sexual activities profoundly influence the teens adult decisions including mate selection and employment success or failure. Helping the teen to mature early will help their life time of happiness.

Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor

Directive and non-directive play therapy are the two main ways I work with children in therapy. I use art, sand, toys and games to help children feel safe in the counseling environment. Children express themselves through play, using their imaginations to share with the therapist their thoughts and feelings. Working with young children also heavily involves the parents, teaching them new skills that help with behavior modification.
