Childhood is the epitome of simplicity and innocence. Some of the hallmarks of childhood are unspoiled dreams and hopes for the future. On the other hand, adult life is full of challenges; one has to make choices, take responsibilities, face challenges, and accept consequences that might come along.
These two streams of life can seem at odds with each other. However, by gaining an understanding and appreciation for each of these two developmental stages, one can try to bridge the gap between these two life spans.
I have met many patients over the years who drag their differences to a point where these differences break both the spirit of love and the bonds of relationships that bind life together. Based on my 25 years of experience, I usually recommend a holistic and objective assessment of the problems as part of the solution.
These assessments include understanding, first and foremost, the needs of the individual. These can include anxiety, depression, ADHD, peer issues, family problems, stress, and many other things. I treasure the insight the individuals bring to the conversation with their questions, concerns, observations, and overall experiences. I try to bring these understandings to my therapy sessions and welcome those involved with the individual to lead the individual towards a passionate, kind, and fulfilling life.
If you are concerned about your future or that of your child, I would like to help. I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation with my clients so that they can understand what I do. This helps to both calm the nerves of my clients and work towards building a relationship of trust with my clients.
