Hello

I hope to have the chance to get to know you and your family soon. 

 

First, let me tell you a little about my professional approach and background.   Since earning my graduate degree from Washington University's Brown School of Social Work, I have dedicated my clinical practice to work with children, teens, and families. I believe that counseling is most successful when therapists work collaboratively with clients, and so that is how I will approach our sessions.  

 

Parents: You are an expert on your child.  My job is to learn from the wisdom of your experience and figure out together how best to help and support you and your child.

 

Kids: You are  the most important person in the room. You get to be in charge of a lot of things and it's my job to follow your lead.
