I value the importance of working collaboratively with parents. I find that this dynamic provides us with a better understanding of the underlying emotions that are driving the less desired behaviors; moreover, allowing us to identify helpful strategies unique to the child, and to implement appropriate interventions that will help a child thrive in their environment.
I take a warm, supportive, and empowering approach when I meet with families to understand what challenges are bringing them to seek help. I work closely with parents and caregivers in order to help them gain a better understanding of the complex underlying dynamics that often make a child’s needs difficult to discern. I believe it is important to help parents and caregivers to better understand the child and encourage them to view the child’s “problematic” behaviors as symptoms of internal emotional distress and as a means for communicating their distress as well as their need for help.
I offer ongoing parenting support and short-term parent coaching/consultation
