I used to work with kids who had experienced the pain of divorce/parental separation, the loss of a loved one, sexual/physical/emotional abuse, accidents, multiple transitions, bullying, and more. I am no longer seeing children in my practice; however, after a decade of working with young children, I have a full understanding of how adverse childhood experiences impact both the young child and the adult child. Childhood is full of experiences that will shape us for the rest of our lives. It is a time that we learn about who we are inside our families, our communities, and our world at large. Some kids go through experiences, or have temperaments, that make childhood (and subsequently adulthood) more difficult to navigate. I provide a safe place to: share and understand one’s past, build coping skills to manage difficult situations, learn to express and better manage intense emotions, and ultimately build desirable relationships with one’s self, family and friends.
