I recognize that the decision to come to therapy with a young child can be a difficult one. It is my goal to work with children and their families to identify strengths and utilize these strengths to help them overcome whatever obstacles may be causing problems. When most people walk into my office for the first time they immediately comment on how welcoming and friendly it is. I'm glad! I want children and families to feel very comfortable because only then are we able to work together to achieve the goals we identify. I have been working with young children and their families in a variety of settings for many years now and have helped many families meet their therapeutic goals. I work with a certified therapy dog named Miss Gadget who not only adds to the nurturing environment of the office but also assists in helping clients reach their goals.
I have practiced in a variety of settings and have worked with individuals, couples and families. My specialty is working with young children and their families. As an interactive therapist, my treatment approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients address current life challenges and long-standing issues. With compassion and understanding, I help individuals find resolution to a wide range of personal concerns and psychological issues.
With an integration of complimentary approaches, I draw from a variety of methodologies and techniques to incorporate what is most helpful for each individual. In a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each of my clients individual needs to help them attain the personal growth they’re striving for. Together with each client, I work to develop strengths and achieve life goals.
Because it can be difficult to find a therapist who is qualified to work with young children, I limit my practice to children under age 12.
