Child and adolescent counseling will help young people acquire the skills necessary to manage their distress in healthy and effective ways. I will help young people to learn to problem-solve rather than to act out. I like to work with young people early when their problems begin to develop. It is much more beneficial to work on these patterns early on before they are “fixed” and harder to change. My approach is gentle and direct. I like to work with child and parent and I guide parents to better ways of interacting with their child or teen.
