Childhood mental health challenges can interfere with the development of healthy, supportive relationships critical to their overall development.  Many aspects of their, and their family’s life are disrupted as relationships with parents, siblings, teachers and peers are often affected.
Close to 10 million children between the ages of 0-17 in the United States are prescribed daily psychiatric medications.  Some of the most commonly prescribed, stimulant medications may carry a high potential for abuse, and, depending on the medication, other serious side effects including blood sugar disturbances, sleep disruption or muscle control issues.  Such medications do not address the underlying causes of your child’s behavior(s); at best, they temporarily cover up surface symptoms which often manifest as another mental health condition later in life.
Conditions I work with include:
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Tourette Syndrome (TS) / Tics
Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders associated with Strep Infections (PANDAS)
Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
Eating Disorders
Smith-Magenis Syndrome (SMS)
Selective Mutism (SM)
If your child experiences any of the following it may indicate they’re struggling with, or have a predisposition to developing, a mental health condition:
I have found homeopathy to be the most effective therapy when working with children suffering from mental/emotional concerns because it involves a whole body, individualized approach to healing.  I see your child as an individual with a unique presentation of symptoms, not as another generic diagnosis. 

By learning exactly the type of behavior(s) your child is experiencing we can find a homeopathic remedy that will stimulate their body to fall back into balance and heal. As such, this not only decreases their current maladaptive behavior(s) but it also decreases their susceptibility to progress toward lifelong mental health concerns.

In addition to homeopathy, to achieve optimal wellness sometimes nutritional support and education, lifestyle changes, or herbal support may be recommended depending on your child’s specific needs.

Are you concerned about your child’s 
behavior, attention or emotional development?

You are not alone!  ​​
Mental health concerns among children are on the rise.  Identifying and supporting these concerns at a young age can be crucial to minimize the progression into more serious, life threatening mental health conditions later in life.
According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), 50% of all lifetime cases of mental illness begin by age 14.  Help prevent your child from being part of this statistic by seeking help today!
