As caregivers, you want a meaningful and lasting relationship with your child. You want to harness their strengths, help them thrive, succeed, and feel safe.

But, right now your child’s behavior might be all-consuming for you- affecting your relationships, your work, and even your sleep. You might even feel upset with yourself for not having all the answers.

Parenting can be hard and can feel overwhelming. You are wanting to do the right thing and find the answers to help you connect with your child and help them grow, but you’re stuck.

I have helped hundreds of kids and families navigate traumatic events, such as abuse, bullying, divorce, death and loss. And I have also worked with kids who struggle with rage and anger.

When I work with families, I typically meet with the caregivers first to get a whole picture of the issues at hand. You are the expert on your child, so together we will set goals that feel right for you and will help your child. I then develop a treatment plan to help us achieve those goals and then begin the therapeutic process with your child and work with you every step of the way.

If you want to gain control over your life again and stop spending endless hours on the internet trying to find a solution. Give me a call and together we can make a plan to bring about meaningful change for both you and your child.
