As a divorce coach and child specialist, I have helped many families move though the transition of divorce by working with attorneys, writing parenting plans, and advocating for children 's needs.
Hello! As a goal-directed professional, my primary objective is to come to understand my clients in context, to identify influences that contribute to both stress and success, and help them generate strategies to move forward in their lives. For the past 16 years, I have had the pleasure of working with children , adolescents, and their families to help better understand how to reduce stress, how to do better in school, and ultimately, how to be happier.

Additional areas of expertise include child , adolescent, and adult therapy; cognitive therapy; mindfulness; play therapy; family therapy; marriage/couples counseling; child social skills and anxiety groups; effective parenting strategies; parent workshops; psycho-educational testing.
Reflecting back on 25 years of experience in practice as a licensed psychologist I am deeply appreciative of the trust placed in me by both current and former clients with whom I've worked, or who have referred their family or friends. I am told it is my easy-going, non-judgemental and comfortable style that helps my clients immediately sense my ability to connect with them and feel understood, supported and safe. While always professional, compassionate and sensitive, I believe my sense of humor also provides 'good medicine' and contributes to my ability to help others heal and grow.

Is your pre-teen or teen doubting themselves because the feel like they don’t fit the same mold as their peers? Have they expressed feeling alone, lonely or excluded? Have they experienced a loss or a trauma that is impacting their day to day life? The challenges children face today are many and the resulting feelings show up in the way they behave and feel. Possibly feeling sad or anxious, having frequent stomach and head aches, and/or behavioral and mood changes. Are you overwhelmed, feeling as though you can't make this better for your child ? It only takes one family member's stress to throw the whole family off balance.

When one experiences trauma, it is possible that how they relate to others may change. I strongly believe that relationships; how we relate and interact with others, is the cornerstone of healthy living. What is left unresolved from one's history or childhood often finds its way into the relationships one has in the present. As a family therapist, I spend my time supporting individuals and families in exploring these past experiences that have made them into who they are now, allowing them to move forward and live a healthy lifestyle.

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.
