There is help!  Therapy can give your child the tools to be more successful with peers, improve academic performance, and be a more positive member of your family.  I can help your child or adolescent heal the hurt, find new solutions, learn healthier ways to cope with daily problems, and communicate better with others.

An important part of the healing process is working with parents.  Whether you are concerned about emotional, social, or behavioral issues, I will provide you with the support and information you need to help your child at home.  In a non-judgmental, encouraging environment you can learn new ways to enhance your skills and confidence with your child.

"We’re worried about Maria.  She hates going to school and hardly has any friends.  Her problems are also starting to affect the rest of family."

Through therapeutic conversation and art or play therapy, your child will explore feelings and methods of communication in a nurturing, safe environment.  He or she will develop healthier coping skills.  I believe in empowering parents by supporting their strengths and offering effective parenting tools.

"I love Jason, but I have trouble liking him.  He’s out of control.  His teachers complain about him.  Nothing I’ve tried has worked for very long."

While all parents feel overwhelmed at times, life can become unmanageable when a child has an undiagnosed psychological or neurological condition.  I will assess and work with your child while providing you with the strategies and resources you need.  I can collaborate by phone with your child's physician or teacher if needed.


I am a preferred provider for and accept Premera Blue Cross and First Choice Health.  If your insurance is with one of these carriers, you will need to provide your insurance information to me well in advance of your first session.  (I must verify specific behavioral health benefits, policies and exclusions on your plan prior to your first appointment).  I do not accept any other health insurance but can provide you with statements you can submit for your own reimbursement.
