I understand that a child who struggles at home or school with strong emotions or behavioral challenges, requires a lot of time and attention, seems angry, withdrawn, sensitive, or just doesn’t seem themselves, may leave a parent feeling frustrated, worried and exhausted. You want your child to do well and be happy, but you're unsure what will help. It can be difficult to find the right resources to address: low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, behavioral outbursts, and difficulty maintaining positive relationships. I specialize in working with children ages 3+ to improve functioning and establish healthy family connection.

Every child deserves to feel safe, loved, supported, and connected. By providing a safe environment and a deeply respectful, child-centered, and friendly approach at the child's pace, children will be able to process, heal, and grow in whatever way they need to. We will determine what your child needs and how to constructively meet those needs.

If you're still asking, "is therapy right for my child?" you're in good company. It is not easy to reach out, but know that one email or phone call could make all the difference to your child and your family. After school and evening hours available. Parking available near office.
