I have an interest in working with children and teens who struggle with functioning at the appropriate developmental phase or have difficult temperaments to manage, such as anxiety, shyness, sensitivity and sensory sensitivities. These struggles can also be due to emotional immaturity, poor self-esteem, autism, learning difficulties or anxiety/depression. I provide a nurturing environment which allows young people to emerge as stronger, healthier people who can engage more fully in home and school life.

I also provide support to the parents of the children and teens that I see in my practice. This support allows parents to gain a deeper understanding of their child, and enhances the emotional connection between parent and child.

I also believe a strong support system made up of professionals, family and friends are crucial for someone who is struggling.  I help to facilitate this support circle.
