Somewhere along the way, parenting your child got difficult. Maybe their behaviors are causing problems at home and at school. Maybe they are having big emotions. Maybe they are pushing you away. Regardless of what it is, you know you need support. Congratulate yourself because you are already taking steps toward the support you and your child deserve!

Parent support is an integral part of my work and is fundamental to any child's treatment.
Children and teenagers are more overwhelmed today than ever. The daily challenges they face can be highly stressful and can lead to significant impairments in self-esteem, family relationships, school functioning, friendships, and other important areas of life. My ultimate goals as a therapist are to help young people find good life balance and develop a sense of peace within themselves. I enjoy providing a space where individuals and families can safely work through difficult situations, while learning to feel good about themselves, acquire problem-solving skills, maximize their natural strengths, and utilize the supports they have in their lives.

Feelings are sensations expressed through the body and as we learn to turn our attention there, we can (re) parent the little one to reclaim and love all the parts.
If you are struggling at home with power struggles, tantrums, big emotions feeling out of control, or an event has occurred where you want extra support, I am here to meet you where you are. All parts are welcome no matter how big or small they feel. I believe that the heart can guide us if we turn toward it to give it love. The body holds innate wisdom of unconditional love and acceptance within. I am here to walk with you on your journey home to yourself. We offer in person appointments in West Chester, PA and Telemental Health for Colorado. I am licensed in both states.

Are you looking for a therapist for your child or adolescent because they seem down, anxious, or having trouble managing relationships or stress? Being a kid right now is so challenging, and having additional support from a therapist can be invaluable! Maybe you are looking for help for yourself. Maybe you are a parent struggling in that role. Or, maybe you are trying to heal your own wounds from experiences you had early on in life. Maybe you'd like to heal so you can feel better, more present, and less anxious in your here and now.

My work focuses on both assessment and treatment of toddlers, children, and teens who are experiencing difficulties with behavior, mood, development, and cognition.

" I am also knowledgeable about: depression, executive functioning skills, role of nutrition/sleep in mental wellness, and parenting issues.
(Not accepting new clients.) People come to me because they are struggling and feel stuck. I specialize in working with adults and children/families who are challenged by anxiety, ADHD, or "Asperger's" but have experience with many different issues. My approach involves providing information about how the brain works, how to use it as your ally instead of an enemy, and how to find strength in the very things that challenge you. (ex: There are so many wonderful things about having ADHD!) I do this in the context of interpersonal relationships where we talk about things like identity and communication/conflict resolution skills.

Parenting is hard. Parenting a special needs child is harder. Kids don't come with owner's manuals. If your child happens to have special needs, the situation is often confusing. You want nothing more than to help your child. It's what we do when our children are struggling. Sometimes you just don't know what to do to help. It can leave feeling helpless. You are not alone. I know from personal and professional experience what it takes to make major changes. No matter the nature of his struggle, be it autism, adhd, or some other challenge, you can help your child.

In a rapidly changing world, parenting can be subject to fads and changing styles, and parenting in some privileged circles has become a competitive sport. But the needs of child development as delineated by science remain relatively stable: safety, structure, support, and love.
