I have worked in a variety of settings, with a large variety of clients
and issues. For many years, I worked in agency settings, with families that are
going through the courts and learning better ways to deal with their
children to be able to better provide a safe and supportive home. Over my 20 years, I have
worked with children with behavioral problems, learning differences,
ADHD, OCD, spectrum disordres and foster placement or adoption issues. I
enjoy working both with these kids, helping them learn better coping
skills as well as with their parents, helping them learn parenting
styles unique to that child.
My specialized training and experience includes; play therapy with young and older children, anxiety and depression in children and adults, CBT, Post-partum mood disorder, GLBT issues, including supporting clients through transitioning, step-families and alternative family styles.
Not only am I willing to work with teenagers, I can easily say that I enjoy them, and helping them make choices into adulthood.
