I provide tailored psychotherapy for children/adolescents and their families.I have been working along side families for over 20 years in both urban and suburban settings including homeschooled, public and privately educated children. I have extensive knowledge of schools, special education laws and process. I am an empathic, down to earth individual who creates a safe, relaxed and warm environment for my clients. As a mother of two children, I understand how difficult it can be to be a parent. My approach is to help act as a coach/collaborator for parents by helping support them manage emotional and behavioral issues.I look at the entire picture holistically with regards to my client's lives, family, school and peer relations as well as biological, developmental, cultural, psychological and other factors that have occurred or are occurring in the child's life.Through the development of learning new skills and techniques children/adolescents can be empowered to deal with the stresses of life, growth and development.I work to help my clients be the best they can be in all of their life settings. Areas of focus include: Depression, Anxiety, ADD/ADHD, Anger Management, Autism Spectrum Disorders/Asperger’s, Developmental Issues, Cognitive Impairments, Grief and Loss, Divorce, Parent/Child Conflict, Parenting Issues, Social Skills, Peer Related Issues, and Bullying/Teasing.
