About My Clients

Is your child having tantrums, acting out, or struggling to connect with peers? Are you at a loss at how to help your child cope with their emotions and make good choices? Parenting is tough. You are not a failure. I can help your child work through past trauma or tough emotions and enable them to cope with their feelings without acting out while also giving you the tools to support them.

My Background and Approach

I can help your child learn a wide variety of tools that will help them manage their emotions and behavior. My experience working in a public school setting for over 12 years has given me vast experience working with all kinds of behaviors that can be challenging. My goal is not only to give your child tools, but also work with you and empower you to help support your child's emotional and behavioral needs. We will address behaviors directly and the underlying emotions that may be causing the behaviors. We will help your child learn to calm themselves and make good choices in order to keep themselves and others safe.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe all behavior is a child's way of communication. Children engage in challenging behavior for a reason, sometimes because they are having difficulty communicating their needs. Adults and children are communicating something through their behavior during every moment in every day, even if they are not aware of it. Once adults understand what children are communicating through their behavior, they can respond better. When children feel respected and have their needs met, there is no longer a reason to use challenging behavior to communicate. When adults help children find positive ways to communicate their needs to others, children learn important social and problem-solving skills that will help them throughout their life.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
