My Approach to Helping
I specialize in child and family therapy, including a specialization in adolescent issues and young children. My approach to therapy is from a developmental perspective and I do well with challenging cases.
I work with families and individual family members in the form of family therapy sessions, domestic violence issues, depressive disorders, anxiety and conduct disorders in children and adolescents. I utilize psycho dynamic and behavioral cognitive techniques.
My fees range from $200 per session to $300
More Info About My Practice
Young children trust me and talk to me because I can still remember what it was like to be young and can relate to them. I use play therapy and build trust so that children feel comfortable expressing their true feelings as if they were talking to a pier.
Before I was a psychologist I was a Montessori teacher.
Forming a happy health relationship with the therapist is the beginning of correcting their problems and relationships with others. Early intervention is highly recommended for all children with social problems.
Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
Every human is unique and should never be treated in a generic manor. I have been told by my clients that I am open and fair and easy to confide in.
How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
I am happily married with two great adult children of my own. Life has had many ups and downs but the bumps have only strengthened my appreciation for family.
The Duration and Frequency of Therapy
I find that once a week work for most clients but I am flexible. The duration depends on severity and clients motivation to get better and can range from several months to several years.
