Child / Adolescent / Teen Therapy

I truly enjoy working with children and find them to be some of the best clients (sorry adults!). My practice offers practical and fun therapy techniques to help our young citizens overcome the various struggles of childhood through adolescents. Seeing a therapist for a child can be confusing and overwhelming, so I often include play and art in sessions to help the child learn and express themselves through fun and meaningful activities. My office is a fun and safe environment equipped with toys and materials to help your child.

Caregiver Involvement

Most parents ask to be involved or updated on a regular basis regarding their child’s sessions. Dependent on the child’s age and presenting problems, we will work together to determine the best approach to parent involvement while preserving client/therapist confidentiality. This might include joining occasional sessions or scheduling discussions regarding goals and progress with your child.

  • Divorce
  • Anger Management
  • Behavioral Problems
  • Social Skills
