All children experience difficulty in the course of growing up (at home, school, with other children, etc.) or may behave in some way which concerns their parents or teachers. You can always seek extra support to help your child overcome these difficulties and increase their resilience. If you and/or your child’s teacher or pediatrician are concerned about your child’s adjustment or behavior, play therapy is the developmentally appropriate way to help your child. I provide a safe and understanding environment with a variety of toys and expressive arts materials for your child to communicate what they may not say in words.

7 of 10 people will experience a significant trauma by adulthood. Trauma affects each of us in a different way. Sometimes those effects can be substantial and lasting. Leaving trauma untreated can shape the way we think, behave, relate, learn, love, and even parent. Recovering from trauma and/or finding balance in life or relationships is not always easy to do alone. Counseling is the perfect tool to help gain perspective in life's most difficult circumstances and challenges. Our clinicians are passionate about helping our family’s emotional functioning and maintaining healthy balances.

All children have needs. As with physical wellness, I believe mental wellness is found on a continuum. During certain stages of a child's development, certain behaviors may seem fairly typical. At other times, things may stand out a bit ... Perhaps you are left wondering, "Hmmmm...this doesn't seem quite right." Trust your instincts and seek advice before the issue progresses. Taking a team approach, I can help you and your family with individually tailored consultation and treatment for a variety of concerns.

No parent wants to know that their child is struggling but you are truly an amazing parent for reaching out for extra help.
Childhood comes with ups and downs. Sometime these typical ups and downs become more persistent and as a parent you may be concerned. Maybe you are noticing that your child is showing constant worries, they seem down, withdrawn or are crying a lot. They complain of stomachaches or headaches. They get angered or irritated easily, they are struggling with getting along with family members and peers. School and typical activities that they used to be able to engage in appropriately are now difficult for them. If this sounds familiar, I am glad that you are here.
