Thanks for viewing my profile. I work from a developmental perspective with clients across the age span. My treatment approach with children who may suffer from autism, ADHD, anxiety, learning disorders, or behavioral difficulties includes cognitive-behavioral methods, play therapy and joint parent-child sessions. My experience as a school psychologist and special education teacher informs my treatment. My approach to adolescent and adult treatment focuses on establishing a trusting relationship where client concerns can be expressed and addressed in a non-judgmental, collaborative atmosphere.
I involve parents in my work with child clients to enhance functioning in the home and collaborate with school staff as needed. If you are an adolescent or adult client seeking to make behavioral or life changes, I help you gain insight into the barriers to achieving these desired changes.
I offer convenient weekend hours and free phone consultation. Please contact me by phone or email for a quick response. I look forward to meeting you and together finding pathways to successful treatment.
