We assume that childhood is a carefree happy time for kids, but for some children, this just isn't the case. Worries, instability, shyness, learning issues, sadness, attention problems, impulsivity or out of control emotions can rob even our littlest children of the joys of being free to play and learn in a healthy way. If you have concerns about your child. I can help! If your child struggles with the developmental tasks of growing up or if your child has experienced some type of significant loss or traumatic abuse, I can help!
Children sometimes need a safe relationship with someone outside the family to help them work through their challenges. Parents are an important part of the treatment team and also benefit from the support and education inherent in the therapeutic process.
I have expertise working with preschool and early elementary age children who more naturally work through their difficulties through their play. As a former Special Education teacher, I can relate well to children with developmentally delays, ADHD, and learning disabilities. If you are ready for change, I can help!
