If you are a parent with an anxious child, then you have come to the right place. I will show you HOW to break the cycle of anxiety. I will help you conquer the anxiety culture – escaping the high demands of school, home, social life. I address common somatic issues often seen with anxious children, such as GI issues, insomnia, headaches. We will develop effective behavioral plans and goals for classroom success. You and your child will learn how to recognize anxiety and learn how to interrupt common thought patterns. Together we will create a new framework for your family to separate from generational anxiety.

Through the use of role-playing, CBT and other effective interventions that teach young clients to overcome worry, they WILL successfully learn how to deal with anxiety on a day-to-day basis. I also use sand tray, art and play to reach young children to help break the cycle of anxiety. I provide parent education and support to equip you to help your child.

I treat all types of anxiety, such as: OCD, general anxiety, school anxiety, social anxiety, phobias, selective mutism, panic disorder and more. I offer treatment packages to get you moving into action quickly.
