I also recognize how difficult parenting can be, especially when your children are having difficulties of their own.
I have always had a passion for working with kids and teens, and I truly enjoy every connection I make with my clients. I believe everyone is capable of greatness and has all the strengths and resources they need inside. My job is simply to provide a safe, warm space where they can feel comfortable being themselves, and together we discover ways to meet their goals. I have experience working with all ages, but I primarily work with ages 8 to 18. I help kids and teens with problems of depression, anxiety, anger, bullying, self-esteem, LGBTQ+ issues, behavior problems, relational problems, school issues, and grief/loss.

Watching your child struggle with emotional challenges can be tough! Understanding the mood swings and behaviors can feel like decoding a puzzle. One moment, they're upbeat, and the next, they're withdrawn. They might lash out with yelling, slamming doors, or even physical aggression. These outbursts can leave you bewildered and drained, especially when coupled with signs of depression or anxiety. Seeing them buckle under the weight of school and social pressures is heartbreaking. It's natural to feel overwhelmed and frustrated as a parent. Yet, deep down, your primary goal is to guide them toward a place of peace and stability.

If your child is having a difficult time with the change in their family dynamics, I provide a safe space to help adolescents process their emotions, sometimes with art! My hope is to help your family recover, repair and thrive.
Has your family experienced divorce, remarriage, or trauma? Is your family struggling through the transition? Sometimes we have expectations of what we want our family to look like and it does not work out that way. Our expectations can create stress when they do not match our reality. Let me provide a safe space for you and your family to talk about your challenges. Then we can explore your expectations, and create new ones.

I have extensive experience counseling individual adults and children, couples, and families who are struggling with recovery from abuse, trauma, grief, depression, or emotional and behavioral disorders. During counseling, I use different techniques to help individuals explore and better understand their situations and the steps they can take to lead them towards the change they desire. I work with children ages 3-10 in a format called play therapy. During play therapy, I work to understand the child's play and help him learn how to change the way he thinks about, feels toward, and resolves concerns.

Are you struggling with work, relationships, and/or parenting concerns? Does your child struggle at home, childcare, and/or school? My belief is we do the best we can with what we know. I believe there is a need behind behaviors and once that need is identified and addressed, new behaviors can develop. We need a space that we can be heard, validated, and learn new ways to tackle difficulties in our lives. I specialize in working with children and their families to reduce problematic behaviors such as aggression, anxiety, depression, and social concerns.

Having a child or teen who is struggling emotionally or behaviorally creates a sense of powerlessness for parents.
My practice focuses on treating children and teens with depression, anxiety, attachment issues, eating disorders, substance abuse, attention deficit hyperactivity, and behavioral disorders. Play therapy is my primary tool to help children cope with issues as they grow and develop. Although the child is my client, I work to provide education and support to parents, as the child's primary support system.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results.
