Working Together

Sometimes children and parents need a little extra support to go through life events like separation or divorce, death in the family, moving to a new place, or any other life event that increases anxiety or causes imbalance. All of us have seen the impact of COVID-19 on children. 

Your adolescent might be showing defiance and resistance to authorities. You are fearful that he is drifting away; unable to focus on school work, not interested in spending time with family and being obsessed with social media or video games. You are not alone. Although fighting for independence and increased peer influence is developmentally appropriate, there might be other factors influencing their behavior. Very rarely do adolescents open up to their parents but they respond well to professionals. 

I have over 15 years of experience working with children, adolescents and parents affected by complex trauma in their lives.

I provide a safe and caring environment for children and parents to heal and grow.  Is your child suffering from -

  • Anxiety - social anxiety, generalized anxiety, constant worrying 

  • Depression - self-harm, suicidal thoughts, isolation, crying

  • Defiance- at home or school, non-compliance, tantrums

  • Difficulty adjusting in blended families

  • Abuse- Physical, emotional, sexual

Young children often do not have the vocabulary to express their thoughts and feelings like adults do and oftentimes express themselves by acting out or shutting down. I found that play therapy, CBT, sand tray, and art, work well with children. When the parents are on board, you can see significant improvements in a child’s behavior and academic achievement in a short period.

We can work together to help your child alleviate the symptoms and feel happy and productive. As a parent, your anxiety, fear, and feelings of hopelessness will reduce. You can enjoy quality time with your family again. A small change goes a long way.
