Does your child have big emotions, anger, worries, or behaviors that you are struggling to understand? Has your child been through something difficult or just isn’t acting like themselves? If your child is expressing symptoms of anxiety, depression, or unexplained difficulties, a play-based model allows a safe environment to explore their feelings and needs affecting healthy functioning. I specialize in using a genuine, non-judgmental, supportive approach to helping children and families develop new ways of thinking and feeling, as well as learning new sets of skills for making choices and having healthier relationships.

Current Immediate Availability. It starts so small. Some frustration here, some outbursts there, avoiding situations that trigger uncomfortable emotions, occasional episodes of sadness or anxiety. Gradually it gets worse. Suddenly you find little joy in life, you don’t recognize yourself in the mirror, and you are spending the days feeling stuck in the intensity of these emotions and thoughts that control your life. Maybe you are watching your child experience these things and are feeling helpless seeing them struggle. It is time for change, time for healing, but you just are not sure how or where to start.

With 15 years experience working with teens and families, focusing on depression, anxiety, self-harm, trauma, eating and body issues, parent-child conflict, and addiction, my goal is to give teens a safe place to explore their emotions and their struggles, while giving them tools to effectively communicate.
I have years of experience working with addictions, depression, and teen issues. I am passionate about recovery and helping those in need find their own recovery. I work to help individuals let go of the old messages that are mean and belittling to themselves, and help replace them with compassion and kindness. Because, it's when we feel good about ourselves that we are able to treat ourselves well. Battling mental health issues is hard and having someone you feel safe with to explore the deep, dark parts of your soul is where the healing begins.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Tucson, AZ provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Tucson build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
