I have worked with children and adolescents for over 30 years.  Since they are not just small adults, it is important to structure their therapy with their specific age and developmental level in mind.  This may include individual, group, and/or family therapy.

I employ a variety of interventions including:

  • Expressive Arts Therapy
  • CBT - Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Supportive therapy
  • Mindfulness stategies


Children and adolescents are facing a variety of challenges that are unique to this generation including difficulties resulting from use of social media, video games and other electronics.  These difficulties impact young people in many ways including:

  • family and peer conflict
  • difficulty expressing anger and other feelings
  • increased feelings of isolation 

In addition, we are seeing an increase in anxiety disorders and depression.
