“Behind every child who believes in themselves.. is an adult who believed in them first”. – Nelson Mandela
I have worked with children continuously throughout my life: as a pre-school teacher during my undergraduate career, as an intern during a number of different doctoral internships, and currently in private practice. There is something so special about working with children, and I am humbled to be given the opportunity to help.
Throughout the years, I have gained a wide range of experience working with children who come from a variety of backgrounds and diverse diagnoses.
I enjoy incorporating a number of unique and depth-oriented interventions to help your child open up and feel comfortable. I have worked with children who have endured trauma, divorce, strained family relationships, as well as children with behavioral or emotional difficulties. My specialties include anxiety, trauma and loss, stress and coping with change, parent/child conflict, ADHD,, encopresis, depression, and behavioral difficulties.
I continue to use a depth- and insight-oriented lens, even when working with children. I also work from a family perspective, bringing parents into sessions and working hard to repair the lines of communication to get the family back on the right track.
My goals are to help your child learn to effectively communicate, help parents learn to better understand them, and help families create and solidify a lasting bond.
