I have worked extensively with children and adolescents who have experienced trauma within the child welfare, juvenile justice, and educational systems.
Children and adolescents are often suffering in silence. Faced with many obstacles at each stage of development, I believe children and adolescents are often not given the tools to understand exactly how they are feeling or why they feel the way they do. Because we often think that children are undeniably resilient, we forget they may also need help and guidance in areas that we, as parents, may not always understand. Children and adolescents are my focus because I believe I can meet them where they are at and make a difference not only for them, but for the entire family as well.

I have been working in the education system for twenty years. During that time, I have learned that most children and adolescents just want to be heard. With all of the pressures and expectations put on children and adolescents today, they need a safe space to talk about what is going on in their homes, schools, neighborhoods and inside their heads.

** Hi, and welcome to therapy. Choosing to come to therapy I understand can be a serious decision in one's life. Therapy is a way to positively solve issues, like looking at a puzzle and slowly putting the pieces together, so that you as the individual are able to achieve the tools to later take out into the community and apply to your life outside of therapy. The goal of therapy is to not only figure out the puzzles in your life, but to learn emotional tools to use in your life with communicating and interacting with others. listening to client's and humbly understanding what they are going through is so important.
