***For the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic,
I am not providing any in-person psychological services.

Therapy is not a "one size fits all" program. I work individually with each client to determine their best plan for therapy. Therapy with children always involves parents or caregivers, who help develop therapy goals and monitor progress. Each individual in therapy will develop their own therapy goals - even if these differ from caregivers' goals! Being involved in creating goals increases motivation to accomplish those goals.
Sometimes, young children benefit more when intervention takes place in the environment where they have difficulty, rather than in the therapy office. If we decide it's appropriate for your family, I can provide intervention in your home, in the community, or in your child's school (with permission of the school). I can also collaborate with schools to develop classroom interventions.
Read the sections below for details about the approaches I use in therapy with children, adolescents, and adults. All of my approaches are evidence-based, meaning they are supported by research (see my Resources section).
