I love working with children, teens and caregivers to improve the quality of life for all members of the family system. As part of my client centered approach, I do ask that clients and caregivers are active participants in the therapeutic process. As an active participant, you and your child will be able to try various methods to improve and develop the life that you wish to have. I value a holistic approach to therapy which includes examination of the person and how they respond to their behaviors, beliefs, and the community around them by incorporating talk therapy and some expressive therapeutic techniques.
