Rearing a child who struggles with emotional/behavioral challenges is taxing to say the least.
I'm both a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Special Education Intervention Specialist. I've been teaching in the K-12 public system for 18 years, which gives me a unique perspective when addressing a child's emotional/behavioral concerns. While I counsel children individually, the therapeutic process is a family affair. By aligning with your family -- not as a director, but as a partner, collaborator and coach -- we can work as a team, along with school staff, to develop an effective strategy to address issues with disruptive behavior, academics, relationships, identity, and family conflicts.
