My Approach to Helping

When a child is struggling in school, you need to find out why. If you are concerned about a child's learning, academic progress, social skills, or behavior, a comprehensive assessment is the first step to developing a plan to help. I offer private cognitive, social emotional, achievement, and autism assessments for children 2-18 years old.
Assessment includes intake with child & parent, formal assessments, report including recommendations, and informational session to review results.

As a parent, it can be hard to know when your child’s behavior is just a part of growing up or a sign of a bigger issue. There are several things a child and adolescent mental health professional will look at to determine if a child or teen’s behaviors are problematic. All children are different, and even the most typical child or teen may engage in “problematic” behaviors from time to time, especially when they are tired, stressed or sick. However, if your child or teen repeatedly engages in inappropriate or unwanted behaviors, consider meeting with me.

Primarily I work with children 2-12 years of age, for individual and group counseling. I use a combination of play, art, CBT, DBT, emotion identification, social skills, and mindfulness to treat children with depression, anxietyfears, ADHD, family issues, school issues, and social skills delays.

I also offer continuation of care consultation between family and school.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

I've been there, done that. I have struggled my whole life with personal, family, and school issues. I understand what our kids today are going though. I also know parenting is difficult and sometimes you are at a loss for what to do. I believe having experienced my own struggles has made me a better therapist because I can put myself in their shoes. I know the hurt, the pain, the worry, the overwhelmed, and the joy. I work to give children and teens skills to help them move through life. I can't make the problems disappear but I can give them the tools to make life easier.
