Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Are you looking for help for your child or teen? Are you feeling overwhelmed and concerned about their behavior, mood, or choices? Counseling can be an effective way to get your child and family's life back on track. I have helped children and teens improve their self-esteem, make positive choices, and express their emotions in a safe way. I also work with parents on learning useful strategies to support their child in living to their fullest potential. I have daytime and evening appointments available. Please call today to see how I may be of help. I specialize in working with children and teens using play, sand, art, and talk as means of expression and healing. With adults and families, more narrative forms of therapy are used but will be decided based your need and interest. I am also experienced in using Cognitive Behavioral Techniques. Having worked in a variety of settings, including schools, special education, hospitals, residential treatment, and not-for-profits, gives me a wealth of experience with a variety of problems. I have worked with people from all walks of life and provided the knowledge and skills to meet their desired goals.
