I work with children and adolescents who present with a wide range of issues that are preventing them from functioning successfully at school and in their relationships with peers and family. Over the 30 years I have worked in the helping profession, I have been deeply influenced by my child and adolescent clients, and their parents/legal guardians. The resiliency demonstrated by my clients, who have often experienced significant stressors in their lives, is both impressive and humbling."
