I have over 35 years of working with teens. I worked over 25 years for the Cleveland, Ohio City school district and have provided over 11 years of clinical services to teens and their parents. Some of the teens were at risk children who were either in danger of being placed out of the home or have been placed outside of the home. I have conducted family sessions to assist family member in understanding diagnoses and behavior. I have also taught parents skills needed to educate parents on ways to properly support their children. I am trained in assisting parents with the process of advocating for their children academically. My experience also includes treating children who have been diagnosed with depression and have a history of self-harming behavior. I have also treated children struggling with poor self Identify and the inability to properly communicate feelings. I treat children who have been bulled and teased.
