Since children and adolescents don't always share what's important in session, parental participation is required for a few minutes at each visit.
I bring intention, patience and hope into my work as a therapist and try my best to inspire you to do the same. I like for you to feel secure and comfortable when you come into my office; and empowered and satisfied when you leave. My sessions are free of judgments, and spent building a foundation where progress toward your goal(s) can be made. Regular day-to-day obligations can easily interfere with our best intentions. Identifying and expressing your goal(s) is the first step. I would embrace the opportunity to work with you.
