Your Family

It is one thing for a family member to get a diagnosis or need some extra help at school, and it is another to get the support needed to move to the next step. Every family and every individual in a family might require different guidance or support at different times. I am happy to work with individuals, parents, siblings, or families to resolve current difficulties and challenges. This might include working with individuals to better understand challenges and problem-solve, or working with parents to identify strategies that decrease their frustration and improve their relationship with their children and with each other.
