Child and Adolescent Counseling

In this modern society, children and adolescents are faced with many complex challenges on social and emotional levels.  It can be difficult for young people to navigate the pressures of school and social interactions.  Often times, negative behavior and coping methods manifest simply because the child does not have the skills to self regulate and approach situations from a place of empowerment and self-knowledge.

I will teach your child/adolescent to become grounded and centered as a starting place. Using the techniques of yoga and meditation, we will focus on building an emotional toolbox, so your child can access the best parts of him/herself.  From there, we will explore goals and intentions and discuss what, if anything, is getting in the way of your child truly manifesting from the most positive place possible.  I will meet your child at the appropriate developmental level; therefore, creative play, art, movement, and discussions are all included in my approach, depending on how your child/adolescent is best served.

Children and adolescents can benefit from having a separate person to relate to who is not associated with family or school.  It is refreshing and inspiring for a child to develop a supportive relationship, gaining a different perspective from an adult who simply bears witness to their emotional development.

For five years, I worked in public schools as a school counselor and understand adjustment issues and special education.  This understanding of the school system where your child spends so much time, helps me better serve the needs of your child.

My practice is open to children of all ages.
