My Approach to Helping
ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS! Is your child anxious and worried? Sad or angry? Are feelings expressed through physical symptoms? Are you feeling overwhelmed or even frustrated because nothing makes a difference? If you are noticing changes in your child's behavior, or you're concerned because you aren't seeing progress despite trying everything, you are not alone. Many parents reach out because they too are worried about their son or daughter, feeling helpless and lost, trying to find the right help for their child. I help parents like these to identify specific goals that are reachable and develop solutions that work.
I help parents, children and everyone else with anxiety, depression, anger, fears, OCD, separation anxiety, and acting out behaviors. In teaming up with kids, teens and their families, I have over 20 years of experience working with young people and adults in community, inpatient, residential and day treatment settings, providing individual, group and family therapy. I use play therapy and sand tray therapy with young children and sometimes, even teens. My approach is collaborative, which means that I work closely with parents to make a diagnosis and develop realistic goals and an appropriate treatment plan. It also means that I want to hear from you and even my youngest clients, about what is working and what doesn't fit, so that we are all on the same page.
I know that reaching out is difficult and you probably have a lot of questions. Please feel free to call or email with any questions or concerns. Also, check out my website link below for more information. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
