I use hypnotherapy to help kids and teens with procedural anxiety (ex. shots) and performance anxiety (ex. tests and athletic competition).
I have 20 years experience working in schools both in teaching Health & Wellness and in Counseling.
I currently work full time as a therapist for Tuba City Regional Health Care Corporation in Arizona
Much of my experience as a licensed clinical social worker is with school aged kids and teens. I really enjoy helping them learn to manage the anxiety, social issues, depression, or adjustment issues that are getting in the way of classroom learning and connecting with peers. I feel that the social and emotional skills we learn at this age are as important as the academics. Kids are complex, so I always try to listen and appreciate their strengths and perspective. I also think it it important to include parents and their school support team whenever possible.
I have collected lots articles, links, and resources that I am happy to share with you.
