When supporting children , adolescents and caregivers in management of anxiety disorders, behavioral difficulties, traumatic experiences, parent- child interactions, and peer relationship difficulties, I like to expand on the individual's coping skills, emotion regulation techniques, executive functioning skills, problem-solving skills, and sense of self.
I love working with children , teens and caregivers to improve the quality of life for all members of the family system.
