Parent Coaching

I teach parents to be more effective with their children and to improve their relationships with them. I am particularly interested in working with parents of children diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder, Learning Disabilities, and Autism Spectrum Disorders. Coaching is active work in which I teach strategies and we rehearse them in session to increase parents’ effectiveness when they return home.

Work with Children and Adolescents

Parents bring their children to improve their relationships with them, to help children feel calm,and confident, to develop good friendships, and to feel competent in their schoolwork. I work particularly with children who have learning disabilities, Asperger Syndrome, and Attention Deficit Disorder. I help parents understand their children and how best to interact with them. Play therapy, family meetings, cognitive behavioral therapy and EMDR are all approaches that I use depending on the needs of the child and family.
