Does your child struggle with coping skills, grief/loss, developing friendships or emotional regulation? I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) who works with children and teenagers (ages 6+) individually and in groups as well as with their families.

I can provide school consultation regarding educational options such as a 504 plan or an IEP as I have 15 years experience as a school social worker navigating the special education system.
