My practice specialty focuses on working with families. A variety of issues may bring a child, parent or family into counseling including socio-emotional issues, behavior challenges in school or at home (e.g. attention and impulse control issues and other stressors/trauma (i.e. divorce, separation, death, domestic violence, etc.).
In addition to working with a child, I work with adults. Parenting is a difficult job. I offer support to caregivers by teaching parenting and co-parenting skills. I believe in working to build strong, loving families by addressing issues in a constructive, supportive way.
A special area of interest in my practice is building resiliency in children, parents and families work to help parents/caregivers understand a child’s behavior, emotions and development. My several years of experience, working as a school counselor, enable me to collaborate with parents/caregivers to help a child be more successful both at home and in school.
