Paige believes that it is essential to involve both the child and their parent(s) in the counseling process in order to see progress and change. She prefers to meet with one or both parents for the first session in order to understand what emotional or behavioral issues your child is experiencing and to see if you think she would be a good fit to work with your child.

It is important to note that Paige has limited after school availability, as these appointment times are in high demand.  She will do my best to work with your family's schedule, and she provides a school excuse note if your child misses a portion of their school day.
