Effective therapy focuses on the connection between how you relate to others and your internal emotional experiences. Working through obstacles in your life will deepen your self-understanding. Learning to respond and take actions in new ways will stimulate genuine inner growth. As you work on becoming more of a self in the context of the therapeutic relationship, the positive effects will ripple throughout all aspects of your life.
"Children are the world's most valuable resource and
its best hope for the future" JF Kennedy
I work with children during difficult life transitions such as a new school, adoption, divorce or blended family. I treat children struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, phobias, grief, abuse and sensory integration issues. I work with children of all ages and have specialized training in attachment issues and in utero drug exposure.
Family communication is key during this fragile time of transformation. I will work together with you and your teenage child to promote healthy communication and connection. I aim to assist adolescents to make positive choices as they work through their challenges and acquire more independence. I commonly work with teens who are struggling with depression, anxiety, abuse, self destructive behaviors, self esteem, body image issues and interpersonal concerns.
