Helping the families I work with begins with understanding their problems. The process begins with a thorough assessment that leads to a plan for how best to meet a child’s needs.
Learning problems and other issues in school can have many causes. Using a comprehensive, science-based approach, I can help figure out the best way for your child to be more successful in school and in life.
Problems with attention, focus and impulse control, such as ADHD, can interfere with learning, with behavior in different settings, and with social relationships. Understanding how these problems arise, and what to do about them, is a big part of my work with families.
Therapy with children and families focuses on building positive behaviors and learning new ways to cope with the difficulties of life. The goal is to build on a child’s strengths, and to promote the resilience to handle the ups and downs that everyone experiences.
