Individual Psychotherapy

I specialize in providing individual psychotherapy for children ages 6-13. These sessions are typically 50 minutes and vary in process based on the child's age. Broadly, these sessions are important to explore the three main areas of a child's life; home, school, and peer relationships. I help the child identify behaviors and habits that are undesirable, and are stressing in those areas and then build on their strengths to adjust those into more positive actions in their life. Individual sessions may or may not be complemented with family and parent sessions. Sessions range from weekly to monthly based on family need and ability.

Family Psychotherapy

Family psychotherapy can include the child along with their parents/guardians. Occasionally, depending on the child's symptoms and struggles, a sibling might be requested to attend with the client to work on sibling issues. Family sessions are typically 50 minutes. Within these sessions, the primary focus will be to keep a positive and strength-based attitude in exploring family relationships, interactions, and problematic patterns that are disruptive to your family. Together we will work towards creating solutions and positive patterns that will benefit everyone in the home.

Parent Psychoeducation

I specialize in working with parents, apart from their child to help navigate the behaviors and stressors that might arise. Many times when we experience friction or discomfort in parenting, parents can learn and make some positive adjustments without requiring your child to be involved in sessions. Occasionally there are habits and patterns in the home that parents can identify they would like to change and request support in implementing interventions to assist and observe results. These sessions are typically 50 minutes and can include 1 or more parents that are in agreement to work together for their children's best interest in mind.
