Children & Families

I work with children between the ages of 4 - 17. Working with children also means working with the whole family. I have the most success in helping children when the parent(s) are actively involved in the their child's therapy. With children, I use a combination of art, dialectical behavioral therapy, play therapy and traditional talk therapy to help them express their full range of emotions and support them along their natural path of development. With parents, I provide psycho-education and teach parenting skills to help re-enforce positive changes in the home.
