GLADLY TAKING NEW CLIENTS! AFTER HOURS AND WEEKEND SESSIONS AVAILABLE! Each person's journey is filled with stories of both triumph and tragedy. Our stories should be honored and explored in a safe and accepting environment. Depending on where you are on your journey, you might be feeling discouraged, disconnected, or depressed. Sometimes when we are in these places we can feel stuck in negative patterns or lost in unhealthy coping. Counseling can help a person find the support they need and discover the skills for empowerment and healing. I specialize in attachment and trauma-related issues in both children and adults.

I believe that every person is capable of healing. Therapy should be a partnership between therapist and client, and together, we will find a therapeutic method that works well for your family. My primary areas of focus include working with adults, children and families to address needs related to behavioral struggles, depression, anxiety, and relationship disruptions. I believe that play is the universal language of children , and that through play therapy experiences, children are able to make sense of their world and heal.

Child Therapists

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
