Specializing in Children's Wellness
Through my experience of building a practice, I came upon a position as a school counselor in order to support my growth. Through this placement, I had the opportunity to work with children and their families, and to develop a special understanding of children's and family issues.
Working with children takes a special touch! They come in to treatment with a very different idea as to why they're there - usually, it's the desire of the parent that brings them here, and that can be confusing to a child. I make it a point to create a comfortable, fun, playful environment free of pressures and judgment in order to allow kids to interact with me in any way they like. Children communicate in a different way than adults do. My training provides for me a unique talent of being able to decipher the underlying messages children are longing for us to understand!
Currently, I am working with children and families around issues of:
- Emotional Distress
- Attachment and Separation
- Family Relationships
- School Anxieties
- Learning disabilities
- Sexual assault and abuse
- Food disorders
