Sometimes the demands of childhood and teen years are more than kids (and parents!) can handle. Problems in childhood not only affect children and teens, but their families too. I consider myself a partner in the change process as I help individuals or families work through whatever is troubling them. I have specific training in working with children , teens and families. I work with clients by first understanding their needs and pull from a variety of interventions and methods in order to best serve my clients. I work collaboratively with clients and aim to go at a pace which is comfortable, yet conducive to progress.

Many individuals of all ages are faced with challenges that lead to anxiety, depression, traumatic symptoms, communication struggles, and low self confidence. With all of these challenges piling on top of one another, it makes it difficult to effectively process and complete ones daily tasks. In children and teens, these stressors often show themselves as struggling to fit in at school, low self esteem, seclusion, low motivation, and poor communication skills. Many adults struggle with the stress of daily work life balance, relationships, family dynamics, and past traumas.

I currently have availability for early morning and early afternoon appointments. I work with adults who are seeking therapy to cope with issues from trauma, anxiety and depression. You’ve wandered to this page because you know that something in your life has not been going in the way that you want it. On the outside, everything seems to be just “fine” but on the inside you feel overwhelmed, unresolved and overall not happy. Maybe, something happened recently or in your past that you have not been able to process but have said that you’ve “moved on” from it.

Child Therapists

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
