For as long as I can remember I have always had a passion to help others, especially children and teens. Being a child or teen can be frustrating because they often feel unheard or misunderstood. This population may experience school related phobias, stress, behavioral problems, and mood swings. Sometimes they are caught in the middle of a family break-up, feeling torn about a divorce or blaming themselves for parental problems. Their brains’ are not fully developed until around age 25 years old and they process information from their ’emotional’ brain most of the time. Emotional outbursts, mood swings, poor judgment and questionable decision making can be emotionally draining for parents and caregivers.
I help uncover potential mental health issues, skill deficits, or social problems that may be driving your teen’s behavior. I will provide an emotionally safe and non-judgemental space for children and teens to explore their behaviors, thoughts and feelings. I seek to help them learn to communicate more effectively, new ways to manage behaviors and realize their potential and resiliency.
