Is your teenager feeling anxious or sad, grieving a loss, having problems in school or using drugs? Are you having trouble talking to your child about the changes they are going through? Your teenager experiences many stressors which can lead to various issues that impact your entire family and these stressors can be explored in therapy to give your family the relief you are searching for. Your teenager needs a safe place to express his/her feelings and learn healthier ways to cope with struggles to help him/her go on to lead a healthy life.

Wherever and however these issues are surfacing, I would love to help in uncovering the reasons why your child is struggling.
I imagine that on most days we all work hard to do the best for our children . No matter how hard some of their challenging behaviors may be; you have love, patience, understanding, and most of all you continue to try to be creative and consistent. But in the end, something just is not working. You continue to ask your friends and family for support and advice, yet you are growing more stressed and tired by the minute. I can help your adolescent come to understand, and work through their struggles and challenges.Adolescence can be a time in life that can be complicated, demanding, and sometimes confusing for both you and your teen.

Parent Child Interaction Therapy, (PCIT) is an effective model of therapy for children 2-9.
As a child & family therapist, I guide families through meaningful change. I help parents move from feeling concerned and frustrated to optimistic and empowered. Children move from lost and alone, to secure and loved. I focus on communication and relationship building, supporting families by increasing their effectiveness in these areas. Parents and youth experience increased mutual respect, understanding, and empathy, creating opportunities for communication, validation, and problem-solving, in a safe environment. I use a Family Therapy orientation because I believe your relationship with your child is their most valuable asset.

I'm a certified practitioner of Child -Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT), Family Overcoming Under Stress (FOCUS).
As a parent/caregiver, a certain level of stress is normal, however when your stress level becomes unmanageable, it is time to seek professional support. I help infants and their parents; individuals and their families repair the effects of trauma and stress in their lives. I believe the earlier we address emotional, developmental, relational, social and individual (behavior) functioning, the better we can assist the family or individual to make life-long changes.

I believe that children experience life in many of the same ways as adults, however, unlike adults, children are not always capable of expressing their needs, thoughts & emotions clearly.
Has life become stressful and overwhelming? Are your family relationships being impacted? I believe this stress can wound the spirit and cause parents to be angry, children to be angry and act out and spouses to become resentful. I can help families and individuals communicate in ways that help to heal old wounds and restore a sense of hope. I work with your own internal strengths to support change and help you discover your unmet needs. I strongly believe in the power of self-exploration to create opportunities for positive life changes.

If you are the parent of a teenager and have seen your child struggling with school, their peers, and have seen negative behavior changes, my counseling experiences have shown support and active interventions can raise their confidence and improve their behaviors.
If you have been suffering in your relationships, you may be tired of attempts you have made to change things and feel nothing is working. My experience has shown therapy can improve how you feel in your relationships. I also work with adolescents and their parents, adults with relationship difficulties, eating disorders, anxiety and depression. If you have been feeling unfulfilled in your relationships, you can become more confident and become closer to your families and friends with the collaborative support I give. I have see adults become more fulfilled and teens become more confident and close to their parents
