The parent-child relationship is one of the most significant relationships we will have; it can be life-giving in more ways than one. It can also be stressful at times, and often needs support and encouragement. Would you like to enhance and strengthen your relationship with your child? Would you like to support your child's ability to manage his/her emotions? Do you need help understanding and communicating with your child? Is your child worried, anxious or troubled and needing extra support?
I am a Licensed Social Worker with experience working with children, adolescents, young adults, parents, and families. I specialize in play therapy techniques, trauma, depression, anxiety, anger, and behavior problems. Before beginning my practice, I gained experience in a variety of settings, including foster care, adoption, residential treatment facility, schools, and community mental health.
I use a client-centered approach, allowing the child or teen to work through their feelings in a non-directive way in safe and trusting environment. I work with families, supporting them through the therapeutic process alongside the child/teen.
