Is your child defiant, does he or she have difficulty transitioning, is there something traumatic effecting your child’s emotions or behaviors?  Are you feeling overwhelmed, stuck, or, frustrated trying to help?  Over time and without support these things can disrupt your relationship with your child leading to more problem behaviors or stronger negative emotions.  Learning new ways of communicating with each other and strengthening your relationship are possible and this is where I can help.

I specialize in working with children, adolescents, and families.  My specialities include behavior problems, trauma, depression, adjustment issues, relationship challenges, and parenting tools.

I believe that clients do not necessarily need to be in treatment for a pro-longed period of time.  I strive to meet clients’ treatment goals in a year or less. Research has shown that effectiveness of treatment levels off at around 6 months at which time 75% of clients improve. At the year mark in treatment, 85% of clients show continued improvement.

My direct, goal-oriented approach is effective.  It addresses the subtleties of how you communicate with your child and how to build consistency in your home which leads to a more rewarding relationship between you and your child.  I am committed to empowering you as a parent and helping your child to be healthy.  I use play therapy as a medium to help young children use therapy effectively and can teach you how to play with your child!
