My Approach to Helping
Does your child indicate they feel sad, depressed, angry, or overwhelmed. Do they struggle with school, relationships (with peers or family members), addressing responsibilities at home, or seeing tasks through to completion? As a parent, do you find you try one approach after another in order to support, encourage, or motivate your child? These situations can be painful, frustrating, and discouraging for both children and their parents. With this in mind, if the answer to any of these questions is “yes” (especially if this is the case for multiple questions) and you want to move forward and experience some relief, we should talk.
My approach focuses on skill building and relating these skills to general principles and concepts. As a result, children and parents learn how to apply these effective practices in a variety of circumstances. Experience has taught me; learning and growth occur when therapy becomes an active process. As such, I often provide therapy assignments.
My experience and approach provide opportunities for those I work with to develop both competence (“I know what to do”) and confidence (“I will be successful”). Perhaps most importantly, this means, the growth and improvement you and your child experience together is both meaningful and sustainable.
