Is your child struggling - at home, at school, in social settings? You are not alone in this journey, and I am here to help! There are so many pressures and expectations on children and teenagers which can begin to take a toll on their mental health. Often times there are life circumstances - divorce, grief, changing schools or navigating friend groups- that can cause disruptions in a child's life. There may be learning differences or symptoms of ADHD that can cause stress or anxiety.
Through treatment approaches of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Play Therapy, or Brief Solution Focused Therapy, I can help your child and family work toward a healthier, safe, and emotionally strong life. Please visit my website to learn more and to begin the conversation about how I can help your child or teen function at their maximum potential in social situations, at school, or at home. I can also provide consultation to school providers or your child's pediatrician.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

I offer Individual, family counseling and also consultative services.

Individual therapy sessions provide a safe, nurturing and confidential space to address a wide-range of issues. Typically 50 minutes long, sessions may be comprised of talk-therapy, setting goals and skill building, or identifying and practicing new coping strategies. Depending upon the issues being addressed, it may be recommended that we meet weekly to start. We will work as a team committed to helping you feel empowered to make positive changes in your life!

Family therapy sessions are a safe place for children and their caregivers to address relational issues and practice new ways of communication with each other. Family sessions are offered at 75 or 90 minutes, depending on issues being addressed, age of the children involved, and size of the family.

I am able to provide you with feedback regarding your child's IEP, 504 or behavioral plan, or to help you make sense of any recommendations or evaluations given by psychiatrists, psychologists or pediatricians. I am a strong advocate and am able to attend appointments and meetings with you as requested for an additional fee.
