I team with Parents and their children to address developmental concerns, frustrations and parenting/child relationship challenges. Often, my clients come to me in order to address school complaints of behavioral issues, developmental delays, challenges related to Autism, ADHD or parenting struggles such as tantrums, lack of motivation, hypersensitivity or aggression. Addressing Couples and Families, we work together to end negative patterns and frustrations that keep repeating themselves. We rebuild trust and connections that you might have felt were lost. And we create reality-based solutions and next steps for children, couples, and families.
My approach is child-centered, positive & upbeat. Through our work together I create a personalized approach for your child that includes Art Therapy, Sand Tray activities, Play Therapies and Behavioral Re-direction. Areas of child-therapy I focus on includes, Autism, ADHD (including school advocacy), trauma, adjustment struggles & attachment issues.
Families, whether blended, biological or chosen, all have dilemmas & challenges. They also have the potential for deep connection, stability, peace & happiness. I work from my heart and instinct– yet I show up prepared with training, science-based approaches & education, which includes: Autism Specialist I, EMDR, Attachment-Based, Family Systems Therapies.
