Announcement icon Our office is open and accepting new teletherapy clients. We are currently able to offer video sessions and phone sessions.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Registered Play Therapist specializing in work with children and adolescents struggling with impulsivity, hyperactivity, oppositional or defiant behaviors, or other social, behavioral, emotional, or psychological concerns. I often work in coordination with caregivers and school faculty to implement strategies at home and school to decrease the child's destructive behaviors and bring back a sense of flexibility, adaptability, and peacefulness within the child. Don't get kicked out of your current daycare or school- call me first!
I am an ADHD Certified Clinical Services Provider and specialize in children presenting with impulsive, hyperactive, or behavioral concerns at school and/or at home. Through our work together, my focus will be to increase your child's executive functioning skills of inhibition, self-regulation, and behavioral management to decrease problematic behaviors.
I believe in the importance of a connected, attuned, and secure parent-child relationship in order for the family system to thrive. My work with clients often incorporates ways for parents to regain a sense of control in their parenting and bring back a sense of joy and connection with their child.
