People do not fit in perfect little boxes, nor should treatment be tailored to a "one size fits all " approach. Everyone is different and unique.

Advancing through the obstacles of life is not always easy. As human beings, we experience a wide range of emotions and it is natural to experience unwanted thoughts and/or feelings. Furthermore, navigating through modern life stressors and crises does not always come naturally. If your child, teen, or young adult is experiencing difficulty, counseling services may be a healthy and beneficial way for them to learn how to process and cope with external and internal stressors. It is my goal to empower young individuals and help them acquire healthy coping skills through psychotherapy.

I specialize in trauma recovery, child and adolescent behavior issues, adoption, and family blending.
Do you feel like reminders of the past prevent you from moving forward? Are you caught in a cycle that you don’t know how to break? Unresolved trauma leaves us feeling broken, damaged and disconnected from our true selves. You may be feeling discouraged, misunderstood, and exhausted by how much energy it takes to cope on a daily basis. If you or your child are experiencing nightmares, flashbacks, or panic related to past events, we should talk. The struggles you are facing can affect emotional and physical health. I want to work with you to better manage and understand what you or your child is experiencing.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Clearwater, FL provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Clearwater build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
