Please note: I am currently open for autism spectrum disorder assessments for kids ages 1-5. For all other kids and concerns, I have a waiting list. I love working with transgender or gender-expansive kids and LGBTQ+ families, and I also enjoy supporting kids with ASD, developmental delays or disabilities, histories of trauma, and other emotional/behavioral challenges. I value caregivers as experts on their families. I partner with caregivers to make a plan that will benefit the whole family, using a strengths-based approach in which what already works is a foundation for further growth and development.
I draw from child-centered, behavioral, attachment, narrative, and solution-focused theoretical foundations to counseling, with additional training in trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy (TF-CBT). From there, relationships take center stage. As we enhance relationships, we see children start to heal and grow into the amazing people they are.
The right support for children and families can bolster resilience and allow them to thrive no matter what challenges they face. Reach out to me today so that we can schedule a brief phone consultation to get started. I work at Life Essentials Psychology under the supervision of Thao-Ha Phan, LMFT.
