Parent Therapy

I provide parent therapy for caregivers in need of education and support regarding their child’s emotional wellbeing. This is an area of intervention that I am particularly passionate about. I believe that the environment in which children and adolescents are immersed is central and critical to their abilities to learn how to regulate their emotions. Parent therapy services include early intervention to equip parents with life long skills needed to raise resilient children, as well as targeted parent support tailored to the specific needs of youth.

Caregiver Workshops

I provide regular caregiver workshops on a variety of topics to help parents acquire knowledge on emotions, emotion regulation, temperament, and the impact of parenting on emotional development and resilience. Based on my experience and feedback, these workshops are a great way to obtain knowledge on how we understand various presenting issues in children and the evidence-based effective strategies that parents can use to support their children. This is often a valuable orientation to individual therapy or more tailored parent support. Workshops are mostly didactic in nature, with room for questions and answers.
