Areas of Specialization
BIRTH TO FIVE
I offer dyadic (parent-child) therapy for infants, toddlers, and young children who have experienced trauma, stress, separation from loved ones, loss, as well as those who have a parent or caregiver impacted by their own trauma history. Treatment focuses on strengthening the attachment relationship to support the child's cognitive, behavioral, and social functioning. Services include a thorough initial assessment, developmental screening throughout treatment, play therapy, and individual sessions with parent/caregiver as clinically appropriate.
CHILD AND FAMILY THERAPY
I offer individual and family therapy to children, adolescents, teenagers, and adults. Integrating my education, training in child development, and experience in utilizing evidence-based practices, I can assist you or your child in working through:
Depression and/or Anxiety
Loss, Grief and Bereavement
Managing Strong Emotions
Life Stage Changes, New Transitions
Challenges of Parenthood
For families that are not seeking therapy but want to learn additional ways to support the bonding process with their infant, I provide individual or group classes to teach Infant Massage. The 5-part course educates parents and caregivers on effective ways to promote nurturing touch and enhance communication with their infants and young children to support healthy social, emotional and physical development.
