My work is focused primarily on guiding people as they work towards resolving current concerns in their lives while at the same time, learning new skills that can help them in managing future difficulties more effectively. I view problems from a systems perspective and believe that many of the challenges we face coincide with changes occurring in people or in relationships that are important to us. I work with individuals bringing a wide range of issues to therapy including social, emotional, or behavioral difficulties, work-related issues, marital and relationship problems, substance abuse concerns, and difficulties that emerge in parent/child interactions.

While my work is currently with elementary school children, during my 17 years as a licensed school social worker, I have worked with students of all ages (k-12) including those with disabilities and significant behavioral challenges. My expertise is in identifying social or emotional factors that may be impacting children's functioning at school. Having recently conducted a research study on the potential impact of family interaction patterns on children's social and emotional functioning, I have a good understanding of how anxiety may at times, unbeknownst to parents, be transmitted through the generations via the multigenerational transmission process. Well versed in the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) standards used by schools today to measure social/emotional competencies in children, New Legends Counseling, Coaching and Consulting, LLC specializes in teaching social and emotional skills to children and practices helpful in reinforcing these capabilities to parents.
