About

- - - - - - - - ONLY Offering Parenting Consultation - - - - - - - - - - For 15 years, I've specialized in working with kids and their families, but I rarely have openings and often have to turn away parents who need help. I know how frustrating it is for parents to find therapists with openings, and with this in mind, I now am offering a series of three consultation sessions for parents to gain further insight into the roots of what their child is experiencing, and how parents can help. While my consultations are not a replacement for therapy, parents have said our meetings are extremely helpful.
I work with parents around a wide range of issues, such as their child's anger or anxiety, defiant or acting out behaviors, phobias, various types of trauma (including medical), and depression. My goal here is to help parents better understand what their child is trying to communicate through their behavior, and what might be at the root of the issue.
With this in mind, we explore how parents can best help their child. Whether as a therapist or parent consultant, I approach my work with a social and racial justice lens. I welcome parents with children of any age.
