Before I got married I had six theories about bringing up children; now I have six children and no theories.
- John Wilmot, Earl of Rochester
Many people seek a child therapist when their stress levels, or a child’s behavior, reach an unmanageable level. Other reasons a family may consider child therapy or family therapy are numerous, including stressful life events such as divorce, loss of a loved one, birth of a sibling, adoption, or moving to a new location. Family conflict is also a catalyst for seeking a child therapist or family therapist. Making contact with a therapist is the first step.
I provide early childhood, adolescent, and family therapy. Sessions may take place in my office or in your home. Sessions may be individual, family, parent/s, siblings, or parent/child sessions, depending on the specific needs of the child and/or family. If requested, I can also incorporate visits to daycare providers, the child’s school, and any other person or environment that is important in the child’s life. I work with a variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, behavioral problems, and issues specific to adoption and to LGBT youth.
Each course of therapy is tailored based on your child’s and family’s specific needs. For young adults, I will incorporate any other service providers or family members that you choose to involve in your therapeutic process.
