About

As the parent of a struggling child or teen, you may wonder what you can do to help them feel better. I’m here to provide you and your family the support and guidance that will help you gain a deeper understanding of your child, and feel more connected to them. I am passionate and experienced in helping children, teenagers, and their families overcome life's challenges. I have seen many children and teens struggle to express or articulate their emotions. That’s what I am here for. I find playful ways to help children express their inner world while guiding parents to also be curious to what is under their behavior.
I believe that we can have a better understanding of a child’s needs by taking a closer look at emotional, behavioral, developmental, and societal factors. I favor a collaborative approach and incorporate the most important people in the child’s life. This individualized plan helps to build effective, supportive, and long-term change.
You took the first, major step in helping your child overcome their struggles, simply by being on my page today. I commend you for that! You can find information on me on the IFC website. Please do not hesitate to reach out for more information, questions, or support. I look forward to being able to be a part of your family's growth!
