Licensed Child Psychotherapist & Play Expert
Hi there, My name is Theresa and I am a licensed psychotherapist and I treat children, teens, and families. When I am not seeing patients in private practice, I nanny on the side. I am a cheerful and loving person, by nature. I believe in play-based learning, modeling and rewarding positive behavior, setting limits empathically, and use research-based parenting methods & strength-based learning to support healthy emotion regulation and healthy child development. A little bit about myself: I am one of seven, and love being around my family, specially my three nieces. I grew up with a younger sister who has severe special needs and as a result we were raised with a live-in nanny, who we consider to be part of the family. I enjoy playing beach volleyball and cycling. I have been babysitting for over 16 years and have served as a nanny for children with ADHD, Autism, Angelman's Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, and other neurological impairments. Can't wait to meet you and your family!
