Child and Adolescent Therapy
I work with children and adolescents using evidenced-based treatments. I provide age-appropriate skills to allow children to manage difficult thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in social and academic settings.
As children learn best through play, I create a fun and dynamic environment to enhance learning that generalizes to real life situations.
As adolescents readily experience a number of changes in their social and family lives, I emphasize building a trusting relationship with my adolescent clients as the basis of treatment.
Depending on the child/ adolescent's difficulties, parents play a role in therapy as well. Older children/ adolescents can be more independent in their treatment. Parental involvement may include practicing skills outside of therapy sessions.
Areas that I treat:
· Procrastination / time management / organization skills
· Trauma and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
· Interpersonal Difficulties
· School stress
· Daily stress
· Low self-esteem/self-worth
