Navigating childhood can be a difficult process, especially when confronted with changing circumstances and unexpected issues. Parents can find it hard to discern what their child’s needs are and can also struggle with dealing with the fallout of such outbursts. I offer a way forward through these challenging times, being able to guide families through problematic behaviors as well as give resources to promote a healthier family dynamic.
My approach to therapy is holistic and client-centered. I believe that everyone is unique and the solution is never the same for emotional and behavioral issues. I take the time to get to know my clients and understand their needs and strengths, so we can work together in order for their needs to be met.
I utilize several different treatment modalities when working with individuals in my care. This includes: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness practices and Parent and Child Interactive Therapy.
I have a particular passion for working with children and adolescents who are struggling with oppositional defiant disorder. I know that this can be a challenging diagnosis for families, and I am here to offer support, guidance, and effective treatment strategies to help these young people thrive.
In addition to my work with children and adolescents, I also offer parenting skills support to help parents better understand their child's needs and behaviors. I know that parenting can be a difficult and rewarding journey, and I am here to support parents every step of the way.
If you or your family is struggling with depression, anxiety, anger management, oppositional defiant disorder, or any other emotional or behavioral issue, please don't hesitate to reach out. Together, we can work towards a brighter future.
