Does your child get easily annoyed or nervous? Have difficulty handling frustration? Argue and throw tantrums? Maybe they often appear angry or you notice they are always putting the blame on others? Are these symptoms affecting not only your child but you and others in your household? Taking care of a child as he grows is certainly a formidable task. The various parent- child relationship problems one faces during this journey can be difficult. Realizing that children are trying their best to cope as well, is the key to being understanding, calm, and caring in helping take care of their problems.

As a parent, you want to make sure that your child or teenager is able to cope with different life events in healthy ways. You have worked really hard on instilling strong core values and beliefs in your child or teenager but it just hasn't seemed to make the changes or provided them with the information you had hoped. I'm here to tell you that you aren't alone in this journey. Learning to connect and communicate with your child or teenager is the first step and through the guidance and support of a therapist such as myself, your whole family will have the opportunity to make positive changes.

As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I have continued the use of systems work within the family dynamic to help with improving communication, empowering parents, and help with marital and parental relationships with children : whether in young, formative years, to adult children needing guidance, and assisting in solving inter-generational problems.
We live in a world in which we must rely on relationships. The most common need I hear from clients is the desire to improve their personal and professional relationships. Improving these relationships goes a long way toward improving our own mental health. I have been helping individuals and families navigate important relationships and transitional times in their lives, by helping them find strengths within themselves to solve their problems. With a strong background in Organizational Development, I have worked with a variety of clients: from executives needing help organizationally to individuals finding their path in life.

I work with adults, children , teens, the older adults, couples, families, and LGBTQ in an atmosphere of great kindness, hope and respect.
Healing is a relational process in which therapist and client begin a journey of discovering the self through the therapist's creation of a place the client feels felt, seen, safe, understood, soothed, and secure. A womb is created in the room of therapy. This is a recreation of the mother-infant bonding and positive attachment that was lacking or inadequate. In this client-therapist relationship, healing is achieved through playfulness, acceptance, curiosity and empathy.

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.
