I have special interest in working with children , adolescents, couples and families.
Making the decision to begin psychotherapy can be difficult. "Am I really crazy?", "My parents want me to go" or "The last time I went it was useless," are typical obstacles that prevent someone from scheduling the first session. Therapy is making the first step towards improved self awareness. I point out to clients that therapy becomes a weekly safe place, away from their busy schedules, to focus solely on yourself. When this happens people are often surprised at what they discover.

Are you having problems in a relationship? Frustrated because of the challenges trying to understand one another? A loved one? A parent? A coworker? A friend? Maybe behavioral challenges with a child or trouble connecting with your son or daughter? No matter how young or old you are, unresolved conflict that remains in the heart builds up over time and deeply affects your thought process and behavior towards others. Therapy is a process that requires examining your heart, transparency, openness, honesty, work, and will. If you are willing to commit to the process, you will see progress.

Child Therapists

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
