COVID-19 ANNOUNCEMENT: All appointments will be telehealth (primarily computer or smartphone video platform) beginning Monday, March 23, until such time as I receive guidance from government officials and my professional organizations that it is within ethical and health guidelines to meet with clients in person.

All efforts will be made to support clients of all ages, including offering twice weekly half-hour sessions for youngest clients, mailing of hands-on materials when helpful, and three-way calls to include family members in multiple locations. The good news is that even my youngest clients have shown great adaptability in adjusting to a new kind of therapy delivery in this time of our “new normal” as we find solidarity in working together as a society meet a greater health threat than we have ever faced. I am inspired by you all.

Theories of Mind is accepting new clients as space allows (yes there is still a waiting list) but existing clients seeking expanded service are the current priority–if you are on an every other week schedule and want more frequent appointments, let me know. It is my priority to support you and your family in this time of stress.

Please take good very care of yourself! Observe deep social distancing, only virtual playdates and get togethers, only required trips, frequent, thorough hand washing! See you in virtual space!

About me:

Theories of Mind is a counseling practice that offers therapy for children, teens, and adults, as well as parent coaching and academic advocacy for young people and their families.

I work with children and teens and their families to promote behavioral health, quality of life, academic success, and lifelong learning and growth. I specialize in supporting  neurodiverse clients of all ages and their families.

I see families, individuals, and parents adjusting to the challenges of raising kids with learning and developmental differences such as autism, ADHD, auditory processing disorder, and language disorders.

I also welcome young adults and adults dealing with issues of depression, anxiety, loss, identity, sexual orientation, grief, and attachment.

I use a variety of interventions including expressive therapies (especially sandplay  therapy) as well as cognitive and behavioral approaches.
