Relationship Focused Parent & Child Therapy
Parenting is one of the most challenging and rewarding jobs there is, and we often find ourselves wondering if we’re doing it “right.” Sometimes, these wonderings can lead us to have feelings of confusion, worry, fear, sadness, and even desperation. They may even remind us of our own childhoods and the kind of parenting we experienced growing up. Just as we adults can feel lost, worried, or confused, so can our children. Whether it’s adjusting to a life change or just navigating being a little kid in a big world, our littlest ones need strong, kind, and wise parents to help us organize their experiences and help them grow into strong, healthy individuals.
I specialize in working with parents and their very young children ages 0 to 6 to foster their unique relationships with one another and build strong, secure, and lasting connections. My approach is rooted in a belief that the most important thing that a child needs to support their physical, cognitive, and social-emotional development is a safe and secure relationship with their parents. I am adept at helping children experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma and stress-related disorders, behavioral concerns, and other developmental concerns. I am also skilled at assisting parents who are struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, grief and infant loss, and other mental health concerns.
I have extensive training in child development from pregnancy and birth through age six, treating mental health concerns in both parents and children, and strengthening the parent-child relationship to promote positive outcomes. I utilize an integrative approach in my work with children and their parents, including attachment- and psychodynamic-based approaches, as well as play therapy, cognitive-behavioral techniques, and family therapies. I partner with parents, listen to your hopes and concerns, and collaborate with you and your child to achieve your goals. Together, we’ll cut through all the noise and discover what is needed to strengthen you, as parents, and your child, as individuals, and in your connections with one another.
