My Approach to Helping
Are you and your children or teens ready to have better days? Through short-term, problem-focused therapy, I can help your family with challenging behaviors (e.g., temper tantrums) or social and emotional issues (e.g, anxiety) within only a few months. With a warm and collaborative approach, I will address your problems and teach you and your child skills to practice in your daily life. I offer weekly family and individual sessions, one-time caregiver workshops, parent training, social skills groups, and more. Feel empowered knowing you learned the skills to help your family!
I have specialized training to provide assessment and treatment services for children to young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Additionally, I have worked with many children and adolescents with various presenting problems, such as anxiety, sleep issues/insomnia, behavior problems, somatic issues and chronic pain, tics/Tourette's Syndrome, etc.
My focus is on behavioral and cognitive techniques. I see most clients and their families weekly for less than six months. Working together to develop a treatment plan specific to your family, you will likely see significant improvement in presenting problems in as few as 8 to 12 sessions.
