    As we grow, we develop the academic, social, emotional, and behavioral skills necessary to succeed. However, some children, adolescents, and even young adults are delayed in developing certain skills; have unique brains that make it challenging to develop/retain certain skills; or “skip over” certain skills. That’s where Restorative Education comes in! 

    At Restorative Education, I focus my attention on serving children, adolescents, and young adults who are falling behind or are at-risk of falling behind at school due to said difficulties. For example, I may work with a child who has a high level of anxiety that is preventing them from showing how truly bright they are on tests. Likewise, I may work with an adolescent whose struggles with organization and time management are preventing them from getting anything turned in. Similarly, I may work with a college student whose learning disability is impacting their overall GPA.

    How can I help?

    The following are examples of how I support my clients.

    • Improve academic skills in reading, writing, and math
    • Increase executive functions (organization, work planning, time management, etc.)
    • Distinguish thoughts from feelings
    • Identify emotions 
    • Find healthy ways to cope and increase resilience 
    • Discover individual strengths and weaknesses
    • Increase communication and social skills
    • Practice problem solving and conflict resolution skills
    • Develop advocacy skills

    How long will change take?

    Counseling is not a quick fix for the challenges we face. Instead, it is a thoughtful and comprehensive process that provides us with the insight and tools to grow beyond our current level of thinking, feeling, and behaving. The process of being self-aware, learning new strategies and skills, and implementing such strategies and skills differs from one person to the next.
