Children

elephant_a persons a person_seussI 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)
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Behavior Problems
