Announcement icon I am offering tele-therapy through video and/or phone to all who want to be seen during this time.
Through counseling, I support families to identify patterns in behavior and communication. Our work together will be collaborative and strengths-based. It will encourage shifts in the family to promote healthy expression of emotions and communication to improve relationships. I use a directive style of communication and an active and integrative approach with children and adolescents. I encourage parents, caregivers and other family members to be involved in the therapeutic process.
I have a background in community mental health, working with multi-stressed families in schools, homes and agency settings. I have extensive experience and training in treating trauma, sexual abuse, working with learning disabilities, ADHD and behavioral issues impeding functioning at school.
I integrate play, sand tray, expressive arts, music, drama, mindfulness education and nature into therapy. I use Narrative and Solution-Focused approaches as treatment modalities. The duration of our work together is client specific and interventions are tailored to the specifics of the individual/family needs.
