I hope to support you as a caregiver and your child on your journey. No matter how you got here, whether through adjustments, trauma, grief, attachment, divorce, anxiety or other mental health related challenges. I work with both caregiver and child/teen to establish realistic goals that don't lead to a perfect road but one that feels safe enough to travel. This means caregiver presence is important throughout the process as you both explore new ways of being.
I want to support you and your family by using evidence based models that empower both you and your child. I use play based models that are most appropriate for therapy with children. I also use play and other expressive therapies with teens.
You may not have thought your child would ever need therapy and that may take some grieving alone but be encouraged. Let's explore the best ways for you and your loved one to be well together.
