“I’m worried about my daughter”
You know your child, and you know when she’s hurting. You’ve probably thought one or more of the following about your child:
- My kid seems so stressed out by everything going on in life and I’m not sure how to help.
- My child seems to have more worries and fears than other kids her age.
- My daughter gets down on herself all the time. She always says “I can’t do it.” Or “I’m not good enough.”
- My daughter is having trouble making and keeping friends.
- My child seems to be having a hard time adjusting to changes in her life.
- My daughter is so moody and I don’t know why.
“I need help I’ve tried everything.”
As a parent, you have an understanding of the problems you are seeing. You’re looking for a professional who can help guide your daughter to make different choices, so life is calmer and less stressed. And you want the help now before the behaviors become even more unmanageable. You and your child deserve support for what you both are going through.
- What if you could have a conversation where you felt connected with your child?
- What if your child had the ability to cope and problem solve so she could handle life without the meltdowns, shut downs, or blow ups?
- What if your child expressed her feelings in a way in which you could understand and help?
- What if your child could be proud of herself?
You want your daughter to have a happy, fulfilled life. I can help.
“How can you help my child?”
During our first session your daughter will get a full assessment of her challenges. You will be listened to, and your child will feel heard as I get feedback from both of you regarding treatment goals. You will leave the first session knowing the plan for how we will work toward those goals.
Once we identify what the challenges are, treatment will focus on your child’s strengths. I will partner with your daughter to introduce successful strategies that lead toward positive change. Through guided activities and conversation your child will work toward the goals we discussed.
Your participation is encouraged in your child’s treatment process. Parent education, strategy, and feedback are integral parts of your child’s progress.
Does progress take time? Yes. But therapy with me is designed for you and your child to start focusing on solutions, and see small successes turn into big ones.
“Have you seen many kids like mine?”
I have 8 years of experience working with children and young women ages 9-17. The challenges I most frequently treat are:
- Behavioral difficulties like opposition and defiance
- Challenges with depression or chronic moodiness
- Academic stress including low grades, ADHD, and problems with time management
- Peer issues with making or keeping friends as well as “peer drama”
- Chronic worrying, anxiety, and panic attacks
Every child is different and my philosophy is that your daughter has unique strengths that make up who she is. Those are the strengths we build upon to help your child make changes. I am here to partner with you to help your child grow, develop, and thrive.
