Are you worried about your son or daughter's anxiety and feeling unsure how to help? Parents are often making mistakes that can be quickly shifted to help kids feel more confident and autonomous. We will work closely with parents to help guide them how to effectively respond to your child's anxiety. We will also encourage you to challenge your children to engage in the behaviors they are finding difficult. We will help you set consistent limits so you feel more in control and your children feel secure in themselves and their abilities.
We start by getting a clear outline of where your son or daughter may be struggling. We will provide guidance to parents about how to address the unwanted behaviors and instill more confidence in your children. Finally, we will teach your child how to understand and respond to their emotions without being held back.
Our goal is to get children out enjoying life to its fullest. Children learn more being out on the soccer field and playing with friends. Let's get them the tools they need and back out with friends having fun! Call me today for a free phone consultation!

I am trained in many modalities treating a variety of child/adolescent disorders/concerns. I started working with youth while studying in college and immediately fell in love with the work. I truly see every child that comes to my office as just that..an amazing child in need of a little push.

I help children break out of their shells so they can connect with their peers and gain the confidence we hope to see in all children. I love working with children and have devoted my practice to helping children, teens and families. Children often just need a little support and guidance to break through the barriers holding them back.

I LOVE to learn! Truly, I think if I could bee a student forever I would. So, I am always staying on top of the latest research, treatment modalities, reading every parenting or child focused book that comes out. I pull my approach from all over, but at the end of the day my guiding principle is in my values. I value family and unconditional positive regard for all children!
