We all want the best for our kids; for them to be happy, healthy and grow to do better in life than we have. Childhood can be hard. It can be difficult for kids to sort through feelings of sadness, anger, loneliness and being overwhelmed by all that is happening in their lives. Our child/adolescent counselors are trained to provide support through these stages of development, help to process through their feelings and find solutions and tools to better balance life and discover their own path.

I specialize in helping you support and care for your child. Long term we both want your child to have stronger bonds- and a stronger sense of being known by you. Together we will decipher what their behavior is sharing with us and what kinds of concrete tools you and your child can take home. Emotion Coaching, Positive Discipline, and Whole Brain Child concepts are tools we will utilize. With a clearer picture of what is happening in your child's internal world we can partner to find boundaries and connection points. You and your child need a fresh perspective and extra care. Call me and lets see what we can create!

For many of us, the teen years were some of the hardest in our lives. I started my training as a therapist working with children and teens in "the system"- foster care and group homes. In private practice I continue to specialize in working with pre-teens and teens as they approach issues of personal identity, self esteem, family dynamics and school and personal success. I've also worked with teen survivors of sexual assault and molestation, effectively supporting them as they heal and move on from victimization to survivor. My approach is conversational and informal; I treat kids very respectfully and compassionately, with the intention of putting them at ease and developing trust.

In working with children, I utilize a psychodynamic modality of treatment, including play therapy, as the primary way of purposefully engaging your child to discover and understand more about the cause of their current difficulties. I typically provide a treatment plan for the parent/s that details what it is I am doing and why. I also believe it is incredibly important in working with children to include the parent/s as often as possible and include that in the treatment plan. If your child is struggling in a way that is confusing to you and causing you distress, it may be helpful to discuss further and find out if your child could benefit from meeting with me.
