Dependent on the age, development, and need I will draw from principles of play therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and mindfulness practice. We'll begin by building a foundation of understanding for personal experience, perspective and cultural background. Together we'll establish treatment goals and how to move towards those goals through a strength-based, collaborative process.
It's my goal to be your partner in treatment and to provide open, empathetic support to each individual and family seeking help.
Individuals and families of all orientation are welcome and encouraged to reach out.
For parents and caregivers of children and teens looking to better understand, connect, and support their child we will discuss your experience and concerns. Together, we will look at how you anticipate and approach challenging behaviors and find new ways to support and guide your child.
Therapy is most effective when we consider all aspects of life, including time at home, school, during enrichment activities and in the community. Noticing and connecting how one feels and deals during different times of day and across activities will help understanding and establish lasting strategies for difficult times.
