I offer a FREE Initial Parent Consultation to confirm that I am a good match for your family.
Is Your Teen Struggling Socially or Emotionally? Let me put any challenges your teen or family may be facing into perspective, and offer you fresh solutions you may not have previously considered. As an experienced Teen Therapist, I can assist you in finding solutions to problems at home or at school, and teach your teen the skills they need to thrive. For adolescents with a history of anxiety, depression, substance-abuse, or ADD, the coping skills they may have developed could be hindering the attainment of their life goals. I help teens & young-adults reconcile their history and temperament -- with their future aspirations.

It can be heartbreaking to be the parent of a child who is struggling. It feels like other parents don’t have to work as hard as you do. There are tears, tantrums, and challenges at school. They seem to worry about things that other children don’t even notice. You’re feeling exhausted and like no one has the answers. Finding the right person to support you means trusting someone with your child’s wellbeing. It can be scary to reach out to a therapist. You want to make sure that you find someone who can connect to your child and work with you to help you understand what’s going on with them.

Are you wondering how to best support your struggling child? You may find yourself at a loss after reading and researching, wishing you could optimize your parenting intuition and do what's best for YOUR child. The infancy, toddler, and childhood years provide a unique opportunity for families looking to rise above old patterns, and I gently support you in taking hold of this moment to set your child up for a lifetime of mental and relational wellness. Rather than someone to fix your child, you need an expert who can empower you to guide your child through the challenges of life.

Parenting is the most important but toughest job on the planet. But parenting is REALLY tough when your child is struggling. It's painful to watch their daily life interrupted by too many worries, anger outbursts or bouts of sadness. You want so badly to help, but although you've tried, engaging with your child doesn't always have the desired outcome. Feeling worn out? It’s time to try something different. Therapy can help your child better navigate the ups and downs of life AND support you in your role as a parent .
