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.

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.

Sadly, I am seeing younger and younger children coming into therapy with eating disorders. I work with a family based model to help families learn the skills required to intervene to help children begin road to recovery. Frequently, exposure therapy is a big piece of this work where families work with me to learn ways to re-introduce foods back into the child's meal plan.
