The way we have gone about things most of our lives has shifted many times since the start of the pandemic. Throughout this time, you may have felt anxious, depressed, or overwhelmed. Your children may have started their school experience virtually, while you had to navigate being both their teacher and continuing to work or you may have experienced being a virtual student yourself and missed important moments whether that was attending a special event, participating in sports or clubs, or just having the college experience you always imagined. Other life stressors have been exacerbated by all of these changes and uncertainty and your family may be having difficulties in communicating with one another. I am here to support you, your child, or your family in expressing yourselves and navigating relationships.
Is your child experiencing symptoms of anxiety or depression? Does he/she/they have difficulty making or maintaining friendships or engaging in other social activities? Are you worried about their ability to cope with their feelings and experiences? I am here to support your child in expressing and processing their emotions while building a toolbox of skills that they can use outside the therapy space to cope with uncomfortable feelings and difficult experiences.
Is your child experiencing symptoms of ADHD? Does he/she/they have difficulty recognizing and maintaining boundaries? Are you worried about their impulsivity? Are their behaviors impacting their ability to maintain healthy relationships? I am here to support your child in learning skills that will help them slow down in order to recognize the feelings of others, potential outcomes of their behavior, and build positive relationships.
I have experience working with children who have experienced trauma, have social/emotional/behavioral challenges, and who experience symptoms of depression, anxiety, and ADHD. In addition to working with children, I also have experience working with parents/caregivers and families who have experienced or continue to experience trauma or challenges within the familial relationships.
Starting or returning to school is a huge life transition. You may find yourself wondering if you’ve made the right decision, how to find a balance between your school, work, and social life, or how to create and maintain new meaningful relationships. You may also find that some of your patterns and behaviors that worked well for you in your families of origin may now inhibit you or bring about conflict in your new relationships with roommates, partners, or friends. I can help.
I am here to support you by providing a supportive space where together we can be curious about how your past experiences have influenced how you move through the world, what is continuing to serve you, and what you’d like to adapt so you can be the person you want to be.
I have experience working with people experiencing anxiety, difficulties in relationships, low self-esteem, depression, and trauma. I offer individual therapy for youth and adults, as well as family therapy for youth or adults and their parent(s).
