Website
See website: www.chpsychotherapy.com for more detailed information. I help children, adolescents, teens, and adults suffering from mild to severe depression; anxiety/worry/fear; academic or employment problems; trauma/PTSD; peer, family, and significant other relationships; and life transitions such as divorce, death, blended families, aging - to name a few. These often manifest most visibly as lack of motivation, social phobia, isolation, anger outbursts, sleep problems, anxiety/panic attacks, constant fatigue or "moodiness," self-mutilation, substance use/addiction, eating disorders, chronic illness, difficulty making decisions, the need for perfection, and/or a general dissatisfaction in life.
I specialize in children and teens (see blog article "The Teen Brain" under "Resources" at www.chpsychotherapy.com) and I help all clients focus on positive aspects of self; find meaning behind actions/decisions; set healthy boundaries; transform negative self judgement; and increase sense of self, agency, significance and purpose.
I have had much success working with grief and loss; terminal illness; overcoming social anxiety/phobia; trauma; and long-term personal growth. I have extensive knowledge about childhood/parenting issues. I keep in close contact with parents to keep them highly involved with their child's therapeutic process.
