Though I believe parents typically know their children better than anyone else, a thorough understanding of a child's particular communication style and behavioral motivations serves to enrich the parent-child relationship, and I am honored to be a part of that process.
I help children and families in many different ways. Some are struggling with a range of psychological and emotional challenges, others are proactively seeking support and guidance. My therapeutic style is open and accepting, and varies slightly depending upon the age of the client. With younger children, my goal is to ensure they feel successful and understood. For parents, I hope to educate and encourage their interactions with their child or children.
