My practice specializes in therapy services for children, preteens, and teenagers ages 5-18 and their families. Common issues I address include: anxiety/stress, depression, trauma, behavior problems, anger issues, school-related issues, social/peer problems, & family issues. Family issues may include conflict between a child and parent and/or sibling, communication problems, and traumatic losses or changes within the family unit.
My Background and Approach
I have always had a passion for working with children of all ages. I view the child as part of a system (family, school, community) and when we address the system as a whole then greater healing and change can happen.
I see therapy as a unique and incredibly powerful gift that when used can change children in a way that brings them more joy, self-acceptance, hope, and peace within themselves and within their relationships. I love working collaboratively with children and adolescents. I offer support and guidance to the parents and caregivers so that together we can create positive change, healing and restoration for the child and family system.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that change is possible. I believe that if I can give hope to a child and his or her family then something beautiful can arise. I value family, community, spirituality, and interacting with individuals from various backgrounds and cultures. I have children of my own and can understand the struggles and victories of parenthood. If you want to know more about how I can help you and your child, call or send me a message!
