Parents aren’t born knowing how to best guide their child. Each child is unique and yours is no exception. Parents want to learn to recognize and understand their child’s talents, strengths, and challenges, as well as learn how to best address their exceptional needs depending on their own unique personalities. My goal in family therapy is to help parents better understand and interact with their child as well as understand themselves, and together find new ways to help their child succeed emotionally, socially, and academically. I believe that children and parents “do well if they can” and I enjoy helping individuals and families learn the skills necessary to unlock their child’s potential while at the same time improving their relationships with one another.
While I enjoy working with individuals of all ages, I have a special place in my heart for young children. I have specialized in working with school-aged children in my professional career and love to use their imagination and playfulness to address challenges. This approach helps children gain confidence in various areas of their lives.
I believe therapy should be client-centered as you are the expert of your life. I feel that meaningful and effective therapy is built upon a solid client/therapist relationship. I will take the time to get to know you and your family to make sure my therapeutic approach is tailored to your needs.
