I offer individual psychotherapy for children, adolescents, and young adults who are experiencing a wide range of emotional, behavioral, relational, and academic difficulties. With younger children, I utilize play therapy, as play is the language that children use to communicate, learn, and grow. With adolescents, therapy is combined with art or games to engage the rapidly evolving brain.
I understand how upsetting - even frightening - it can be for parents/guardians when their child is suffering, but they don't know how to help. It can be confusing and frustrating for parents/guardians when they know that their child is having a hard time, but they don’t understand why. The entire family is impacted, yet nothing seems to work. If you are a parent whose child is having difficulties, you are not alone - I can help your child and your family.
Oftentimes, parents are concerned that if their child is struggling, then it means they, as parents, have done something wrong. They worry that they will be blamed for "causing" their child's issues. There is no need for such worry when you work with me - I do not blame and I do not judge. Instead, I collaborate closely with each client's family to ensure that we are working together to best help the child and the family.
