I help children in a variety of ways, including:
- Improving self-esteem
- Enhancing healthy coping
- Promoting healthy communication with peers and families
- Adjusting to life changes such as divorce, new babies, blended families, and new schools.
I help parents better understand their child’s behavior, as well as develop positive parenting strategies to effectively support their child’s specific needs.
I also provide an evidence-based treatment called Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) for children exposed to traumatic events, such as traumatic loss, child physical/sexual abuse, and exposure to violence, and is a relatively short-term treatment.
TF-CBT treats symptoms related to:
- Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Behavior Problems
