Growing up and parenting, even under the best circumstances, are full of challenges. When you or your child is struggling, it makes each of those challenges even more difficult. I specialize in helping adults and children navigate these difficult times whether they are brought on by life stressors, grief, behavior patterns, or illness. I work with individuals and their families to evaluate their circumstances, to provide personalized recommendations, and to address their concerns so that they may return to a more comfortable, peaceful way of life. - Dr. Jennifer Koch
