Children, Adolescents & School Advocacy

Is your child having problems managing their emotions effectively?  Children and adolescents sometimes need a person to talk to about their concerns, and problem solve issues they may be having.

I help children deal with their emotions, which can help their progress at school or relationships at home.  They can learn positive coping strategies to face their concerns and see progress by using skills taught in counseling sessions. I make parents part of their treatment and give tips on how to help during times of stress.

If your child has been recommended for a 504 plan/IEP or you would like to explore requesting one, I’ll help you with the process and am available to work with the school on your behalf.
