CHILD & ADOLESCENT THERAPY
My approach is warm, gentle, and collaborative. Therapy can help children & teens:
Navigate their internal world.
Develop coping skills to regulate emotions.
Improve social functioning.
Manage difficult transitions like divorce, moving, or loss.
Increase self-esteem and self-awareness.
For Children 4-12 I use a combination of Client-Centered Play Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
For Children 12-17 I take a warm, Client-Centered, Psychodynamic approach to working with teens and preteens. This means I will work collaboratively with them to explore the development of their emotional worlds with the goal of helping them evolve into their wisest, most grounded selves. I also aim to help teens strengthen their senses of identities in the midst of their demanding social world.
