I work with both adults and children who may be struggling with trauma, anxiety or other emotional issues.
Beginning therapy can be a difficult and scary step for many of us. It is never too late or the wrong time to seek services that can help you through life’s many struggles. As a therapist my approach is person centered and focuses on the immediate needs of the client. My focus is to work collaboratively and alongside with you to help navigate and gain a better understanding of your emotions, past experiences, and most critical concerns. Our emotions can be strong and difficult to manage, in session we can focus on providing you the ability to practice emotion regulation, relaxation, mindfulness, and coping techniques.

Everyone struggles. We fight to get thru stress & problems. You may be there now or feel like it will happen. Like the rest of us, you may not let others in or show your emotional pain, but try to do the best you can to hold on daily. So there's nothing wrong with working on your own, yet it helps to let others in to unload the burden & pain you carry. Many of us fear to share our private pain, hurt feelings, or concerns stirring us emotionally. Anxiety is a normal part of talking to a therapist about your challenges. My goal is not to judge you but to aid you in your process of recovering to a balanced & healthy mind to live fully.

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.
