I have had the privilege to assist children and teens develop coping skills for navigating their difficult peer, school, and family challenges. Some children have experienced something traumatic in their lives such as abuse, a sudden loss, or difficult family adjustment. I work to help the child/teen and their parents/family move to a place where they can give and receive the support one another needs to process and manage the effects of the difficult situation. Some kiddos are dealing with behavioral or learning challenges. I provide assessment and intervention to aid in skill development or behavior modification, family therapy for support and reinforcement of desired changes, and collaboration with key school personnel or physicians (with parental consent) for continuity of your child's care from my office, to school, to home.
