Mary Ellen West, LCSW

private practice therapist specializing in counseling for children and adolescents

Being a kid today is not always easy.

Parenting can be difficult. 

Sometimes we need a fresh perspective and new tools to help us cope with life’s challenges and difficulties. I collaborate with children and their families to find solutions, uncover capabilities and improve relationships.  I provide a safe and comfortable space for children and teens to express themselves, discover their unique character strengths and become strong on the inside.  I work with parents to define a clear and effective parenting strategy that will nurture their child's success.
