I enjoy helping children and families make positive changes in their lives. I provide counseling for children between the ages of 4 and 12 who are experiencing social, emotional, and/or behavioral challenges. These challenges include emotional outbursts; defiant and aggressive behaviors; difficulty managing emotions including anger, anxiety, and fear; negative responses to traumatic events such as parental divorce, abuse or neglect; and issues related to low self-confidence.
Life experiences and events can be difficult for children to understand and navigate. My treatment approach combines play therapy interventions, structured problem solving, and parenting support to help children make positive changes. I provide a nonjudgmental and accepting environment that allows children to explore and learn more effective ways of expressing themselves and interacting with others.
During the initial session, I will meet with you to discuss your concerns and develop a treatment plan based on your child's needs. Contact me with questions or to schedule an appointment. I have evening and Saturday appointments available. I look forward to hearing from you!
