Child & Adolescent Therapy

By the time parents begin seeking treatment options they are often already feeling frustrated and a bit helpless

in their ability to make things “better.”        

 

I view parents as experts on their children and feel that their love, support, and knowledge of their child are crucial elements

to a successful therapy experience.

Children

 


 

I help children understand the connection between feelings, thoughts, and behaviors and how to make changes within that "circle" of relating.

My younger clients come to see me with issues related to ...
  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Attachment and Independence
  • Hopelessness and Isolation
  • Self-harming behavior
  • Food and Eating
  • Body Image
  • Emotional regulation
  • Identity
 
Adolescents

  
 

I encourage open talks about peer pressure, risky behavior, body image, why parents "just don't understand" and the struggle between fitting in and being unique.
