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.

Is your child experiencing problems at school, difficulty making or keeping friends, tantrums, constant worrying or nightmares? I have a passion for working with children and families, and I'm here to help. There is so much pressure today to be a "perfect" parent, and admitting that you need support can be difficult. My goal is to create a safe space for you and your child to work together to problem-solve and get through challenging times.

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.

My hope is to create a safe space where your child feels honored and valued.
Is your teen acting differently? Are they feeling anxious, isolating, displaying low self esteem, having challenges at school or relationship issues with their friends or family? Being a teen today is not easy, especially in a society where social media and comparison consume their developing minds. Do you want to help your teen overcome the many complex issues that impact them daily? You don't have to go through this difficult period alone. Many teens benefit from having a safe place to process their thoughts and feelings while learning coping skills to manage their symptoms.

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'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.
