With over 25 years of diverse experience in both educational and clinical settings, I have helped hundreds of adults and children navigate the challenges in their lives.
Are you finding that as life gets busier and more complicated, you've lost connection with your family? Does it seem that your children have become more complex and harder to understand as they grow older? These are challenges that many families face, challenges that are magnified when factors such as trauma, depression, anxiety, attachment and family dynamics issues are present. We all want to feel a sense of peace, happiness and connection with those we care about. With greater understanding and support, comes greater harmony.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Vermont provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

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. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time (likely in fewer than six sessions), the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Vermont build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
