I have worked with children ages 2-21 for over 15 years in ministry, community outreach and mentoring programs.
Adolescence can be a difficult period of transition for many. Peer pressure, changing environments and non-traditional or abrupt family changes can be challenging for a child as well as a parent. Finding a connection with someone who can help manage and overcome feelings of inadequacy is the first step to wellness.

I have been supporting families and their children for over 25 years. Before I completed my MSW, I worked as a peer counselor, lactation consultant, and parent educator. That experience enhances and supports my work as a social worker. My early training in engineering and understanding of research provides a broad understanding of development through childhood into adolescence. I utilize a strength-based, and client centered approach to the therapeutic process, identifying personal strengths and direction from the person receiving support.

Throughout my career I have worked with individuals, families, and children in a variety of settings.
Life is challenging and it can leave you feeling overwhelmed, stuck, frustrated, and burned out. You do not have to face this alone and talking to someone can help reduce the unpleasant feelings and clear a path to accomplish goals, reduce stress, and improve future circumstances. The objective of therapy is to create a safe, non-judgmental space to help explore, process, discover underlying needs and emotions that contribute to feeling stuck and overwhelmed. Ultimately, our work together in therapy will be to create an individual plan with goals to help you in managing these emotions and regaining control of your life.

Major and sudden life events can be disruptive to your life depending on what they are. They can also create worry, stress, confusion, sadness, anger, emotional pain, and frustration. Do you ever feel that way? Is it because of Child Protective Services, problems with your spouse or partner, or feeling pessimistic about life itself? With 18 years of experience in mental health, crisis management, adolescent behaviors, marital conflict, domestic violence and child welfare my primary focus is to help you heal and find solutions. If you need professional help, I look forward to working with you in a safe and judgment free manner.

Child Therapists

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
