Licensed Professional Counselor

Chances are, your child is somewhat resistant to the idea of meeting with a counselor. I specialize in over-coming that resistance through the use of humor, silliness, and age appropriate anecdotes. Some counselors will spend a lot of time playing with your child--I won't. I'll certainly make them laugh during the process, but therapy with me won't be about us just "hanging out" and playing a board game together. You can also know that I would never undermine your authority as the parent. I believe that parents are to be respected, and, yes, obeyed. In addition to working with your child, I can also show you some ways to get your child's behavior within acceptable parameters.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

I have experience working as a school psychologist and am passionate about helping children feel heard, validated, and valued. My approach is goal directed and evidence based. When working with children, I also work with parents, providing parenting skills, recommending books, and reconnecting parents with their children if it is a presenting problem. If warranted, I work with parents to develop and establish a positive support plan that may include rewards, tokens, or simply being more mindful about providing praise when the child is doing well.
