You want to see that happy smile on your child again.
You knew parenting wasn’t going to be easy but you weren’t expecting consistent meltdowns over picking up toys or watching your child struggle with completing homework. You are tired of calls from the school and feeling like you don’t you have the tools to help your child. As a mother myself, I understand how this can impact your family day in and day out.

Welcome, I’m specialized and experienced in working with babies, children, adolescents and their families.

We together will use therapy, to create a space where we can reflect on and understand your and your child’s emotional and mental states and connect these to behaviors and difficulties. This space eventually will lead you and your child to reorganize feelings, thoughts and behaviors. Understanding and awareness will give birth to change.

I love working with children and adolescents. Before I get a history from you, I like to meet with your teenager to let them feel like they have a choice in picking their therapist. This gives them a sense of control and they are then more committed to the therapy. I will integrate the family as necessary. I have extensive success with children of divorce, those experiencing anxiety, depression, low self esteem and difficulty managing anger. I also connect well with adults and young adults dealing with life transitions.

My therapeutic approach focuses very much on the here-and-now. While events in your past certainly played some role in your present distress, the past can not be changed. I believe the primary goal of psychotherapy is to teach you the tools you need to change the current patterns that are causing you problems. I also have special training and experience working with children and adolescents. While the techniques used with youths are obviously different from those used with adults, the goal remains the same: to provide the tools that will bring about positive change.
