This service is directed to parents of struggling youth who are at-risk of being placed outside of their home or who are already in placement and vulnerable to decompensation upon return.

This service may be appropriate when other services have been tried but have not yielded a desired result and/or a family is willing but unable to attend in-office appointments. Although this service is not typically covered by insurance, additional payment options may be available.

Area of Focus: Adolescents & Families
I am trained to help adolescents and teens who may be displaying difficult behaviors at home or in school or may be having difficulty coping with stressors and maintaining healthy relationships.
I am experienced in reunification support, in-home parenting support and skill building, as well as, behavior modification for youth who are displaying negative behaviors. I am passionate about the opportunity for progress that home-based counseling provides families and youth who are not a good fit for traditional therapy.
