About

Once-upon-a-time none of us were parents and we didn't think much about how difficult that role could be. Fast forward to today and here you are searching for help with your child. Addictive technologies, teaching self-discipline, developing strategies for coping with change are challenging. Teaching life skills, and helping parents be more effective is what I've been doing since 1991. I'm what you might call a generalist in that I work with boys and girls of all ages and relate as easily to a six-year-old as to a sixteen-year-old.
I'm familiar with symptoms associated with many childhood issues including anxiety, depression, ADHD, OCD, and social-skills-deficits. The techniques I use are situationally specific and developmentally appropriate. In addition to therapeutic conversations, (talk-therapy) I have a wide variety of engaging activities, (play-therapy) to choose from.
Pottery, stop-motion-animation, magic tricks, puppetry, story writing, sewing, and book binding are a few examples. I'm a big believer in finding the right metaphor to aide in the change process. I welcome parent feedback between sessions and make myself available by phone, or in-person, as needed.
