Often, children have used up their own problem solving tools leading to complicated behaviors and situations...they may misbehave, act out at home or school, and have trouble with friends. I utilize play, art, sand, books, and interactive talk therapy to create a safe, compassionate, and dynamic approach to help children cope with difficult emotions and find solutions to their problems. I encourage the healing power of the family to help children and adolescents develop, as children often respond best when their significant family members participate in therapy. Treatment can range from a few appointments to long-term support.
My services are always client-centered and confidential, with special attention to the needs and concerns of your child and family. I design therapy and assessments to suit your child's specific needs. Together, we will create a mutually agreed upon plan to resolve presenting issues and concerns.
I have specialized training in the treatment of trauma and attachment disorders, infant mental health, and developmental disabilities. Additionally, I often work with adult survivors of childhood traumas regarding the current challenges they may be facing. I look forward to speaking with you regarding your or your family's needs.
