Emotional challenges are faced by everyone, not just adults
Kids face emotional challenges just like adults but they don't have the same ability to express themselves. This will frequently result in them acting out on
their emotions through defiant and disruptive behavior. They may also become withdrawn and may develop avoidance and attachment problems.
If your child exhibits some of the symptoms listed below or you are concerned about your child for any reason, the time to take action and address those concerns is now.
What may seem like small problems today can become major issues down the road.
Has experienced a trauma
Seems to worry a lot
Appears sad or withdrawn
Complains of stomach aches or other ailments with no known cause
Has difficulty making or keeping friends
Struggles academically and there is no identified learning problem
Difficulty paying attention or focusing on tasks
Confidence issues and low self-esteem
Has your child been diagnosed with ADHD, ODD, anxiety, depression or conduct disorder? Has medication been recommended or prescribed?
Are you comfortable with the treatment path your child is on?
My experience includes over a decade of experience working with children and adolescents in
schools, homes and clinics. I have developed highly effective techniques to help children overcome
emotional difficulties including behavioral problems (mild to severe), trauma, anxiety related disorders and depression.
You are your child's primary source of support. I offer sessions for parents to help you develop highly effective parenting skills, which will not only help you attain the
behavioral outcome you desire, but will significantly improve your relationship with your child.

We will start with a thorough developmental assessment. Together, we will come up with therapeutic goals
to best meet your child's individual needs.
Ongoing treatment will include consultation and input from parents, and
when appropriate, teachers and other relevant parties involved in the child's care. Classroom/school based
observation and assessment will be integrated based upon need. I also offer home visits as needed.
