I specialize in working with children with emotional or behavioral challenges. That means children of all ages, both those of chronological age, and the children that still exist within all of us. I use a whole person, whole family approach, which includes sessions with the child, as well as coaching and discussion sessions with the parents or occasionally the entire family. For children's behavior to change, the behavior of the caretakers must change as well.

Utilizing somatic experiencing, gestalt and psychodynamic modalities, including techniques from the positive behavioral supports model and play therapy, I work with you and your child to explore the origination of emotional or behavioral difficulties and together we will begin to develop deeper understanding and better communication, promoting healing and growth.
