I have spent approximately 12 years working with parents, families, and children (ages 13 and up) engaging in a flexible and eclectic approaches to helping parents learn and incorporate new parenting skills, techniques, and interventions to successfully make changes they wanted to make within themselves and their children. I have worked closely with families via in-person and Telehealth sessions as an IHT (In-home therapist) both individually and with CBHI teams that included therapeutic mentors, family partners, ICC, and other therapist. I have an extensive background working with teens experiencing personal struggles with gender identity, sexual preference, depression, anxiety, anger management, and other related needs and/or deficits.

My daughter has only had two sessions but so far she clearly feels heard and listened to. Her reaction to her sessions: “. He is really funny and easy to talk to, and has experience in the LGBTQ community”. My daughter really wants to talk to us, and does, but she is exploring her identity and coming to lots of conclusions. In this my husband and I are glad that we can offer her another place to strengthen her voice and confidence. Sometimes we feel it is hard to keep up and we want to make sure she feels validated and there are no long term hits to her self esteem. So far this is helping! She is relieved and also launching many new friendships at school that have been happening but she now is actively making her own social plans. Things are coming together. Thank you Robert!
