About

Defeat the bad behavior not the kid. Play is the natural language of the child. Rules without relationship equals REBELLION- are terms I have used throughout my clinical career. Parents, remember the behaviors didn't take overnight to appear, nor will they disappear overnight. But with empathy, compassion, consistency equals CHANGE. OCFS specializes in children from 3 to 13 yo. Mobile-Office-Telehealth services available. OCFS is also a proud provider of Medicaid (BCBS, UHC, Dells Children).
My specialties are forms of Creative Therapies (Play, Music, Art), Behavior Shaping techniques, Parenting approaches, CBT and Social-Emotional Skills Training for Neurodivergent children (ADHD) and Trauma Focused interventions.
I have assisted many parents in coping and understanding children who are suffering from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), Trauma, Mood (DMDD), Anxiety and Attachment issues. Lets chat, and see how we can collaboratively work on improving the life of your child(ren) and your relationship with them.
