Your children need you presence more than your presents.
– Jesse Jackson
Adolescent & Child Therapy
Parents often have concerns about their children’s well being. Sometimes they request a therapy session simply to determine if they are “getting it right” in their parenting, if their children are developing well, and if there is more to do as a parent to foster an emotionally healthy child.
Other parents have more defined issues. They may be in conflict with their children or have observed their children in conflict with others. They may have seen their children struggling with life or school or behaving in self-destructive ways. Children may also have problems adjusting to adoption, divorce, school transition, or loss. Often, children cannot tell you what is wrong so they exhibit unusual or inappropriate behavior.
If your child exhibits signs of anxiety, depression, poor concentration or attention, impulsive or hyperactive behavior, anger or aggression, or any other behavior or expressions that are causing you concern, please contact me for a consultation. As a child and teen therapist, I have years of experience helping children work through problems using play therapy, individual and family counseling sessions.
