I help children (ages 3 to 11) and their families who face setbacks and encounter distress as they struggle to grow, cope, and flourish.
Associate Professional Counselor in Charlotte, NC
If you are frustrated in your interactions, take the next step toward growth by learning skills to enhance your relationship with your child. Outcomes include more effective limit setting and a deeper understanding of how you can meet your child’s emotional needs.
I provide developmentally responsive therapy that addresses many childhood issues, including aggression, opposition, defiance, impulsivity, attention issues, anxiety, attachment disruptions, depression, grief, difficult peer/sibling relationships, parental divorce, high-conflict parental relationships, school refusal, and poor academic performance. My training has a special focus on the unique needs of young children.
I use a non-directive, strengths-based approach with therapeutic flexibility for the benefit of my clients across the lifespan. Offering a safe space of understanding fosters potential for self-enhancing and pro-social growth.
With over 300 clinical hours of supervised play therapy experience, I offer my work with children ages 3 to 11 years old as my area of expertise. I have clinical experience with kids who struggle with a variety of presenting symptoms including: aggression, impulsivity, attention issues, anxiety, attachment disruptions, depression, grief, difficult peer/sibling relationships, high-conflict parental relationships, school refusal, and poor academic performance.
Through three clinical semesters under supervision of my person-centered professor, I have focused my professional development on the necessary and sufficient conditions with a particular interest in therapists’ congruence and how it benefits clients.
