You want the best for your children: to do well in school, make friends, and learn to navigate the world. But sometimes they struggle socially, emotionally, and physically. The responsibilities, expectations, and pressures can be overwhelming. Pain from the past or present can be debilitating, impacting all areas of life. Parents and children may feel alone, misunderstood, and unable to move forward. Children do not always have the words to express their struggles, so they communicate through their behavior. They may withdraw, tantrum, or lash out.

As a School Counselor, I worked with parents and children to achieve greater success in school socially/emotionally and academically.
It can be frustrating and scary when you are struggling and don't know where to find the support you need. You may feel that you have tried everything and you are concerned that things may get worse. It can be difficult to ask for help. Feeling vulnerable is never easy but leads to greater personal connection and overall joy. My style is collaborative and goal oriented. I strive to provide my clients greater self-awareness through insight. Through the therapeutic process, change is possible.

Your choice to seek therapy for yourself or your child takes courage and is the first step to finding ways to improve the quality of your lives. We’ve all needed to reach out for support and encouragement at some point in our lives and to know that we are not alone. Therapy can offer the opportunity to understand and address areas that present us with life’s challenges. For over 20 years I have worked in a variety of settings with preschoolers, children, adolescents and adults experiencing anxiety, depression, behavioral difficulties, emotional dysregulation, ADHD, relationship difficulties, and school problems.

program that emphasizes biopsychosocial and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) approaches and completed my internship at Children's Hospital Boston/ Harvard Medical School.
Therapy is often about change - changing oneself or parts of one's life. Taking steps towards change requires tremendous courage, but many people find the rewards of this process well worth the effort. A supportive, helpful guide can go a long way towards making productive changes and that is where I come in. Support is my primary role; my secondary role is to help individuals identify thoughts or behaviors that are limiting progress in one's life. In addition to helping with a wide range of common symptoms like stress, anxiety, depression, I specialize in health psychology (coping with illness).

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Maryland 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 Maryland 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.
