Raising a child can be fulfilling and gratifying, but also challenging and stressful. Parents are inundated with varying suggestions on how to raise their child and media sources as well as pediatricians often offer conflicting advice. It’s hard to know what’s best for your child. Experts in child psychology and development, generally agree, no one method of parenting is best. Seeing a therapist can help parents achieve common goals, increase their capacity to deal with stressors and face all the challenging situations parenthood ensues. Reaching out to a counselor takes courage, but accepting help is the first step in getting you closer to finding the right solution.

I began my occupational therapy career working with children with special needs in the school district. This required working closely with the parents as how to continue to work on development skills when the child is at home. Parenting a child with a disability can be incredibly challenging and helping a typically developing child navigate the world can be intimidating.

Parents/caregivers are an important part of a child’s therapeutic process. Before beginning sessions with your child, I meet with you to create concrete goals and objectives. This allows us to paint a clear picture of what we are working toward in your child's life. Going forward, I consult with you regularly to help develop parenting skills that will ultimately help your child meet their goals.
