Children & Teens

I passionately believe that there is no such thing as a "bad" child or adolescent. At times, children and teenagers use problematic behaviors, make unhealthy choices, or struggle in certain social environments, yet these actions do not define who they are. I view parenting as the hardest job in life. Almost all of the children and teens I see struggling have good parents that express a strong concern for their child. I provide a friendly, safe and supportive environment to work collaboratively with children, adolescents, and their families. My areas of specialty are:

  • social skills development
  • school difficulties
  • eating disorders / body image
  • anxiety / depression
  • self-esteem
  • communication within families
  • anger management / defiance
  • adolescent substance abuse
