Are you worried your child or teen is struggling to make or keep friends? Does your child have a hard time in social situations? Do they seem angry, depressed, or anxious? As a parent, are you unsure how to help? I work with children and teens to help them develop new life and social skills using talk, play therapy, and movement. During therapy your child will learn to better recognize their feelings and develop new coping strategies that will help improve their relationships. My goal is to help your child gain a better understanding of them selves and become more connected with others.

I have focused much of my career on working with children who have experienced issues such as emotional dysregulation, anxiety, depression, self-injury, dissociation, eating concerns, trauma, and loss issues.
I have over 15 years of experience working with children, adolescents, and their families. I use an integrative approach in working with children, using a variety of therapeutic methods that are developmentally age appropriate and child-centered. I strive to understand the child or adolescent's individual needs and seek to develop a trusting relationship in a safe environment that allows her clients to freely and safely express themselves. I understand that when a child is struggling everyone in the family is affected and work with parents to better understand their children and identify ways to help the family system work better for everyone.

Seemingly different, those who have experienced trauma or live with ADHD share similar experiences with anxiety, depression, low self esteem, unsatisfying relationships, and an ever-changing cycle of restlessness and depletion.
Difficulty with focus, sleep disturbance, slipping academic or work performance, anger, irritability, low motivation, and conflict with family and friends are signs that something is amiss. At times the source is obvious, such as with divorce or grief, but frequently the underlying issue and the "fix" is elusive. Beginning from an IFS (Internal Family Systems) lens, I support the client in getting to know parts within themselves that drive feelings and choices; parts that strive and parts that hide, ultimately identifying unmet needs, unique strengths, and a capacity for self-led problem solving.

**Teletherapy Option Available** The decision to come to therapy typically arises when we reach a point where we say "I can't do this alone." The "this" could be anything; maybe you are experiencing significant stressors at work or in your relationship; perhaps you've had years of trying to manage symptoms of trauma, depression or anxiety alone, and you're tired; it could be that your relationship or family has gone through a major change, and you are struggling to adjust. Whatever the issue is, I am happy that you have acknowledged that support is needed, and in that acknowledgment you are on your way to progress already.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Ellicott City. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
