How long will we need therapy?

The short answer is that it depends. Some families benefit from a short-course of therapy which can last anywhere from one to three months, other families require a more lengthy course of therapy. It all depends on the family's collective goals. 

How do I pick a therapeutic provider for my child/family?

Choosing a therapist can be complicated and daunting. You have a lot to consider in making a decision with who you want to bring into your life and your home. I like to say that you should trust your gut. You will likely know if someone is a good fit for your family within minutes of speaking with him or her. Remember, a therapist is there to help YOU so don't hesitate to ask any and all questions that you may have before making a decision. After you've gathered your information you should feel empowered to take some time to think things over. Your comfort is an essential component to the therapeutic process being both helpful and successful. 

What forms of payment do you take?

Payments can be made via major credit card, paypal, cash, or check.  

Do you only work with foster or adopted children?

No. I have experience working with children from mild to severe behavioral health challenges. Although I have chosen to specialize with this particular demographic  I enjoy working with children and their families in general.

Should I set a room up for therapy to take place?

There is no need to set anything up specifically, although it is necessary that a space is provided that is private and comfortable for individual therapy sessions to take place in. Spaces like the living room, kitchen, and dining room can also be excellent options for family therapy. If you have any concerns about space please don't hesitate to bring it up during our conversations together!

What does child therapy look like?

Therapy with children can be a complex area-just like adults they need to feel comfortable with their provider, feel like they can trust their therapist, and feel like the connection is genuine and warm. The foundation of the therapy is the relationship. I will spend considerable time building a relationship with your child with a therapeutically focused lens. You may see us playing games together, engaging in art projects, taking walks, or whatever other activities are of interest to your child. It is through this relationship, the change that you desire will occur.
