Therapy can provide children a safe and supportive way to learn to identify and express their experiences and feelings; and make progress with social integration, growth, and development. They can develop skills to understand and work through psychosocial challenges. They have the opportunity to gain self-awareness and experience social and emotional success. Creating happiness is what parents strive for when raising children. In my practice, children will learn to identify their strengths, and become more skilled and confident in working through emotional stressors and skill deficits.

Finding a therapist for yourself and/or your child can be a first step in the change process, an act that takes courage and faith.
As a licensed clinical social worker I am passionate about working with adolescents, adults and their families and think of myself as a facilitator of empathy, hope and change. I am a mindfulness/somatic based attachment therapist and work with individuals who have experienced developmental trauma, are struggling with anxiety and depression, anger issues, are engaging in self-harm behaviors and struggling with complex trauma. In addition to this, I specialize in working with the traumatic loss of a loved one and working with young adults who are navigating the world of adulthood and struggling with unresolved wounds from childhood.

Making the decision to seek therapy for your child or yourself takes courage. Most likely you have tried many ways to support your child who is struggling emotionally or behaviorally. Perhaps a teacher or pediatrician has suggested you explore counseling. Juggling parenting responsibilities and other life’s challenges can feel overwhelming and confusing. By providing a supportive, playful, therapeutic environment, my goal is to build a trusting relationship, teach children to express feelings in healthy ways, learn and internalize coping skills, and give parents effective ways to discipline with empathy, structure and nurture.

Welcome! Choosing a therapist is a big decision, and I appreciate being considered! While my background and training have focused strongly on child, adolescent and family therapy, I also work with individual women and couples. I sometimes say that I use a "family doc" model of psychotherapy. That is, I might see an anxious child individually and then, because kids' issues are so intertwined with their families will work with the whole family for a period of time. Or I might spend some sessions with an individual woman, who would then like to bring her partner for couples therapy.

As a child therapist, I seek to guide and support both the child and the caregiver while maintaining the individuality of each child.
Hello. I am a licensed clinical professional counselor in Portland who currently provides child and family therapy for children up to ten years of age. I also provide individual therapy to adults. I believe the connection that is forged during the therapeutic process between myself and the client lends itself for change, insight, growth and a greater capacity to face life's challenges from a place of strength. I have recently completed David Kessler's Grief Educator Training and I am looking forward to now offering grief work as a part of my practice.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Maine 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 (likely in fewer than six sessions), the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Maine 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.
