Counseling services for children through adults. Specialties include:
Child and Adolescent Therapy
With children I use play therapy which helps provides children a safe environment and allows them to "play out" their stressors, or various issues in a way they can relate to. As I work with children, I also will spend time with parents discussing parenting issues and helping formulate a plan that will be most effective for each individual family. I will also work collaboratively with school counselors, teachers, and doctors to make your child and family as successful as possible.
Adolescents can be a challenging time for all. As I work with teens, my efforts are to work build trust and openness in the therapeutic relationship. Similar to working with younger children, my hope is to also come along side parents as well to help strengthen parental bonds with their ever changing teen.
