Thank you for taking the first step in making a change for you and/or a loved one! I am a Clinical Psychologist with over 20 years of experience working with children, teens, and young adults in a private practice setting. I am aware of how hard it can be to make a first move to get outside help and support. However, therapy can be well worth the time and financial commitment as you are investing in your future happiness and success.
I see my role as that of a coach. No one knows you (or your child) better than you do. That being said, we can work together in identifying problems and goals for treatment. I typically use a cognitive-behavioral model and teach a variety of relevant skills such as parenting, coping, relaxation, assertiveness, social skills, focus, feeling identification, communication skills, and anger managment. My office is a safe, non-judgmental, and warm place for you to explore your life, patterns, and challenges and find ways to grow.
Also, in regards to child therapy, I will provide practical suggestions in order to help you best help your child. Your child will also learn a variety of skills in a safe, supportive, and FUN atmosphere. We may play games, draw, or do sports while talking and forming a therapeutic relationship.
