With children , I use play and art therapy, which can help children feel understood and empowered, gain greater self-awareness and work toward healthy development, social skills and individuation.
Life can be very stressful at times. Our moods, anxiety levels, thinking and behaviors can depend on how well we are able to manage these stressors over time. Sometimes, the coping skills we have learned simply are not enough and we feel overwhelmed and out of control. There is a solution to almost every problem. My goal in therapy is to provide a safe environment so that you can learn to better manage your thinking, feeling and behavior and regain control and power in your life.

I am a Board Certified Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a Child Mental Health Specialist.
If someone asked you how you feel today would you say empty? How about disconnected or hopeless? Maybe you feel like you can’t do anything right, or like you’re stuck in the same old patterns and just can’t seem to move forward. Are you and your partner struggling with infidelity, emotional disconnect, or conflict? Or maybe you have a child struggling with behavioral issues and impulse control, self-harm, or even suicidal thoughts. Sometimes, what keeps us from being the person we want to be is our past. The way we were brought up, the relationships we had with our friends, parents or siblings, abuse, trauma, and even the home environment, can muddy the water when it comes to growth and change. And sometimes it’s not the past at all, but rather the choices and relationships we foster in the present that have created a “stuckness” that seems to hold us captive. Counseling can help remove those barriers and move you toward a place of genuine happiness where you have the tools to cope with anything life throws at you. It can help clear unfinished business that is holding you back emotionally, help you heal from trauma, and even help you get back to doing the things you love most.

I also enjoy helping parents struggling with difficult children .
Are you feeling down? Have you noticed yourself being irritable or anxious for reasons you can't fully explain? You might be like most of my clients - a normally well adjusted, intelligent person, struggling with anxiety or depression. For people like you, counseling really works. If you try counseling, you will know if its working within the first 3-5 sessions. Some people need just a handful of sessions to get back to their old selves, others choose to stay involved to deepen their growth. Whichever you choose is up to you, but taking the first step is most important.

Parenting is hard. Like, really REALLY hard. I know we've all been there....feeling isolated, alone, and like we are failing ourselves and our children . But if you are here now, reading this, you are actively looking for new ways to parent and interact with your children . And that's huge! We know through decades of research that caregiver/parent self-reflection is the single greatest catalyst for positive change, in addition to feeling connected to and supported by others. That is where Circle of Security Parenting comes in! Learning how to identify and meet the emotional needs of our children , while staying balanced ourselves.

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.
