Child, Adolescent, and Family Therapy

I work with children individually from 3-17 years of age. Depending on the presenting challenges (i.e., ADHD, depression, anxiety, Autism, etc.), I implement play therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and/or other forms of talk therapy to make sure the child and family reach their success in as few sessions as necessary. Though your child may be working alone with me in the room, as the parent you are an integral part of the therapeutic process and we will check-in regularly or have family sessions on occasion to make sure we are all on the same page, working towards the same goals.

If you have a younger child with Autism our sessions will generally be conjoint, where a parent is present in the room for the duration of the session, giving me the opportunity to teach you the skills necessary to connect with your child.

Dyadic Play
At times younger kids are not ready to be a part of the larger playgroup to work on their skills. This is where interacting and learning how to play appropriately, communicate, and share with one other child in a dyad can be a great stepping stone to building confidence, before progressing to a larger group setting.

In addition, some children with Autism may benefit more from a smaller setting with less social stimulation and more direct attention from an adult to really learn the basics of social interaction.
