I work with kids of all ages, parents, and families. Some of the difficulties my clients face are:
Anxiety, including Social Anxiety, Phobias, Separation Anxiety and Selective Mutism
Traumatic experiences, including grief and loss
Major life adjustments, including separation and divorce
Parent-child relationships, bonding and attachment
In addition to counseling work directly with kids and families, I offer Parent Coaching and Consultation.
During session I may use a variety of techniques to engage my clients and address the problems that brought them to me. Some of these techniques may include therapeutic games, worksheets, role-plays, child-led play and more. I am extensively trained in cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), including training and/or certification in interventions like MATCH-ADTC, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) and PCIT for Selective Mutism.
During our first few sessions, and continuing throughout treatment, my clients and I work together to figure out what techniques will be the best fit.
Information and Forms
I provide consultation services to schools and other organizations to help them effectively prevent and/or address mental health or interpersonal difficulties. The scope and structure of any of my consultation projects will be tailored to the unique needs of your institution and may include things such as:
Providing training or workshops to teachers, administrators, attorneys or other staff
Giving presentations to caregivers and students
Working directly with staff to increase effective communication and collaboration
Helping to create curricula
Identifying ways to increase access to mental health services, resources, and support within your school or organization
Making the decision to separate is difficult. Unfortunately, the process of obtaining a legal separation or divorce is also often highly stressful and combative and can have significant negative impact on the well-being of parents and kids.
As a Coach and Child Specialist with the Collaborative Family Law Association, I work with a team of professionals to help couples navigate that process in a way that is efficient, productive and healthy - for them and their children.
The best way to get started is to contact me directly.
You are free to reach me by phone (314) 266-8234 or email to set up a free initial consultation call. At that time, you will have the opportunity to ask me questions about how I can help and what to expect from my services.
I look forward to hearing from you!
Our initial consultation call is free. After that, I have a fee of $135 per session, payable by cash, check or charge. Payments are due at the time of service.
If you have insurance, I will be happy to provide you with a receipt so that you can seek reimbursement.
