Often children experience problems that involve the entire family. We provide therapy that will help identify your concerns, pinpoint any maladaptive patterns of interaction or in-ability to cope while offering solutions to improve each area.

“You were genuinely interested in getting to the crux of the issues we came to you about, and worked with us in the way that fit our needs. Being non-judgmental, but confident in the suggestions you made to try to help us gave me confidence in you and in turn I followed through to make the changes needed. You definitely mean business; if someone isn't sure they want to make a change or truly get help, they'd better not come to see you!”

" I just wanted you to know how thankful I am for you and what you have come to mean to me and my family over the years. God has given you a tremendous gift and you use it well. We are blessed to have you in our lives and I have learned that there are no accidents in life....the littlest encounter happens for a reason."

“You were the perfect match for (my son)! He is happy and so relieved that we found you. He talked all the way home about you and I could just see him relax and for the first time, smile again. I am not sure how I found you out of all the places I looked, but I am thrilled!”
