Welcome

Is your child or teen experiencing fears, worries or frustration? Are you a parent who is struggling to get your child to listen? Or are you seeking new ways communicate and connect with your child? Parenting is hard work, and parents often feel overwhelmed and uncertain. These days, it is also hard to be a kid or teen. Whatever is going on in your life, I am glad you’ve reached out and that you’ve landed here.

My Approach

Like many families searching for solutions, you may not know where to start, so our work together starts with an opportunity for you to tell your story. I listen to learn what you are looking for, what you’ve already tried, and what has worked so far to make things better. Then, we collaborate to develop a plan for working together. Throughout therapy, children and parents provide feedback so that we can make changes as needed and stay on-track to reach your goals. A good “fit” or therapeutic relationship is the most important ingredient for our work together, and our early sessions offer an opportunity to assess that fit; however, a focus on the therapeutic relationship persists throughout our work together.

My approach to therapy is active and engaging for children and teens, even those who may be reluctant to participate in therapy. I offer evidence-based, relationship relationship focused therapy for kids and teens who are struggling with anxiety or related problems (e.g., obsessive-compulsive disorder). As a therapist certified in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), I also work with parents of younger children to enhance relationships, alleviate conflict, and increase parent-child cooperation. Past clients have described me as resourceful, creative, and caring.

I view psychological assessment assessment as a collaborative process for answering questions and guiding treatment. Parents and clients identify questions, and I design an individualized assessment plan for answering those questions. Assessment feedback includes meetings with parents and clients, as well a report that summarizes the results and provides tailored recommendations for your child and family.
