Raising kids is HARD work. Let's just say that first. That work gets even harder when life throws your family curve balls such as divorce, traumatic experiences, behavior/attention struggles or identity issues. As the child's caregiver, I know you are dedicated to your child thriving. While I am confident that my depth of experience will help explain behavioral outbursts and translate attitude changes, YOU are the expert of your child - not me and not that other guy! I strive to meet every family where they are and remind them of their natural strengths to help rebuild the bridge after life's curve balls.
While I have an expansive skill set, my primarily focus is assisting young people process traumatic experiences, such as sexual abuse. I believe to truly heal from trauma, a child needs a strong support system. I strive to not only aid in the child's healing, but also help their support system.
By coming to this page you've already taken the first step towards helping your child. High five! Seeking mental health services is brave work. After we discuss your child's concerns, we will work together to establish a realistic action plan, discuss symptom reduction, and return your family to their natural state: relaxed, close, and silly.
