Do you have concerns regarding your child?  Are you wondering if their behavior is a part of normal development or if there is something more going on?  Does your child often complain of somatic complaints (stomach ache for example) right before school or during the school day?  Are you concerned about how much conflict there is within your family?  If this describes you and your family, then please do not hesitate to contact me.  I can help you get to the root of what might may be going on and offer evidenced based treatment to help improve either your child’s functioning or your family’s functioning. You will find that I offer a warm, welcoming, and safe environment to help you and your child explore your concerns.  After treatment, you will find that you have a better understanding of your child and your family.  
 
I have particular expertise in treating children who are school avoidant.  School avoidance is a real and potentially serious issue.  It is not at all unusual for parents who have a child who is able to attend school, however complains of frequent stomach aches; to feel like the issue will resolve itself in time.  In some cases, this is true.  However even if the problem seems minor to you as a parent, it is better to have your child evaluated sooner rather than later.  The earlier that school avoidance is treated, the more likely we are to have a successful outcome.  
 
I use several different treatment modalities.  My treatment approach will be based on a thorough psychosocial assessment.  Though I use several different approaches, the most commonly used approaches I use in my treatment are:
 ·Psychodynamic
·CBT
·Family Therapy
·Play Therapy
·Solution Focused Therapy

·Group Therapy
 Currently, I offer two separate therapy groups.  I offer an anxiety group for teens and I offer a parenting support group for parents. Please refer to my web site for details and updates on groups.

The cost for my services are as follows:
 ·Assessment - $120 (90 minutes)
·Trauma assessment - $140 (120 minutes)
·Therapy sessions - $100 (50 minutes)

·Group therapy - $200 (total cost for 8 group sessions)
 
I also offer a sliding fee which can be discussed with me in person
 
I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Pittsburgh in 2002 and I received my master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Pittsburgh in 2006.  Since finishing my master’s degree, I have completed specialized training and certification in family therapy, play therapy, CBT, and DBT.
 My office is conveniently located near Younge & Lawrence and is easily accessible from the Lawrence Subway Station.
