I am a licensed psychotherapist working with children and adolescents facing challenges at home, in school, and in everyday life. I focus on addressing internalizing symptoms (anxiety, depression) and externalizing symptoms (acting out/behavior problems) surrounding academic performance, bereavement, divorce/separation, family conflicts, moving, relationship issues, trauma, self-esteem issues, social skill deficits, and stress. My approach is to understand the world as the child understands it and to separate the child from the problem.
Your child might benefit from seeing me if you notice any of these signs of distress: increased physical complaints, sadness, hopelessness, excessive worry, overreactions, loss of interest in previously joyful activities, regressing, preoccupation with appearance, self-isolation, and disruption in eating or sleep patterns.
Whether your child needs help navigating normal developmental challenges or is dealing with something more serious, therapy can help. Please reach out to me for a free consultation.
