Have you seen your child or teen get so frustrated that they explode? Or maybe your child is one who turns inward and retreats? You find yourself desperate to just connect with your kid and understand what is going on in their inner world.
For all people, behavior can be a huge way to communicate and children can tend to do this in a loud, disruptive or big way. I help bring awareness to parents and help them understand what their child is thinking and feeling in those moments. For teens, I help them express their inner world in a healthier way.
I believe that parents are an integral part of a child’s experience. I believe that when working with a family, there is always room to experience one another’s perspective and I help open lines of communication in order to restore connection within your family.
Working with children and teenagers has been one of my greatest privileges as a therapist. I tend to use a variety of interventions such as art, nature, music, and games as a way to enhance their coping and increase resilience. I offer hope while helping them gain more understanding about what is going on within their world so they can begin to make better choices.
I also work with adults and help them restore balance and discover a sense of triumph in the face of adversity. I offer a space of hope and support while working through the difficult circumstances that have often been out of their control. We seek to gain understanding, self compassion and healthier coping skills to live more of a balanced and grounded life.
