About

Is your child’s worry causing you to worry? Could your teen's “acting out” or behavioral issues be caused by anxiety, depression, or some underlying issue that you may not be aware of? Many children and teens struggle to manage symptoms on a daily basis. This often results in poor school performance, issues with peer relationships, family discord, and other behavioral concerns. If you’re at a loss or feeling frustrated, therapy can be a helpful way to gain an understanding of why a child may be struggling. You and your child can then learn various ways to cope with stressors. Call me for a free initial phone consultation.
I have worked with children, teens, and families for close to 20 years. I have extensive experience dealing with children struggling with school and behavioral issues, anxiety, OCD, ADHD, depression, family issues, self-esteem, and grief. I am trained in play therapy and sand therapy which allows children to express emotions and resolve inner conflicts.
Parenting is challenging. Parenting a child with behavioral issues can be even more challenging. I assess underlying issues that are not being addressed and then help to create strategies to deal with those concerns. I provide a safe and nurturing environment which allows children to express feelings, develop coping skills, and learn to problem solve.
