I find working with children to be an incredible experience. I teach them different skills to improve behavior and make good choices, how to cope during tough times, and how to get along with their family members and peers. Inevitably, though, each child and adolescent I work with teaches me something, too – about love, or forgiveness, or about the innocence of childhood experiences. I treasure being along for their early journeys and working collaboratively with parents to support the whole family. It is truly the most rewarding work I could do and I wholeheartedly appreciate each child and each parent that I work with.

My approach to you and your family will always be warm and inviting - and free from judgement.
