I work with children and teens and understand the challenges they face. Common issues I can help you resolve are:
Abuse & Neglect
Anxiety & Depression
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Defiance, Anger & Resentment
Disruptive Behaviors & Tantrums
Grief & Loss
Sexual Abuse & Inappropriate Contact
Self-Esteem & Identity Formation
I usually start by meeting with parents so that I can fully assess the presenting issues you bring to therapy. I place an emphasis on collaboration with parents and other caretakers involved in the therapeutic process.
Counseling sessions are typically a combination of individual, family and collateral meetings. Interventions often focus on improving interpersonal relationships, communication and coping strategies, as well as regulating emotions and impulses.
I have extensive experience working with boys and young men, utilizing a unique interpersonal method for helping them develop more successful ways to get their needs met.
