Why choose us

Make an impact at any age of a child

I believe youth should grow their voices through supportive parental care and guidance. It has been my experience that children thrive in treatment and beyond when the parents are present and involved. I bring over 25 years of clinical experience with children-related issues and an exceptional blend of high energy, creativity, compassion, and solution-focused interventions to children, parents, schools, and youth-focused community-based organizations.

Nurturing and empowering parents and youth

Every parent faces challenges with their child at some point. I often hear parents make statements like:

  • “I worry that my child seems sad all of the time.”
  • “There are times when my child seems too anxious.”
  • “It feels like my child never listens to me.”
  • “My child has a hard time making and keeping friends.”
  • “I am a terrible parent; I can’t help my child.”

These hard moments can leave you feeling lost, devastated, and afraid. Working with kids and parents is my specialty. As a child psychologist, I speak your kiddo’s language (guess what, sometimes it’s play!), and I help you learn strategies to support them. You don’t have to figure this out alone. With over 25 years of experience, I can assist you AND your child so there is more peace and connection in your home.
