"Kids don't always use words but behavior always has a message and may also be a form of SOS. I help children and teens feel better about themselves and improve their behavior at home or at school. I also help parents and families understand and deal with the mistaken goals of misbehavior. I believe there is always a reason, feeling or unmet need. Understanding and addressing the underlying message helps build bridges with kids and teens. I provide individual, parenting or family sessions that range from educational coaching and enrichment or addressing specific concerns."

Sometimes messages or experiences from the past, faulty beliefs, or challenging relationships keep us stuck and out of touch with our well- being. Couples are helped when each has an opportunity to feel heard, and when early attachment styles and emotions underlying the problem can be better understood."
