Children are a wonderful gift to a family - the world is brand new to them, and they bring with them a unique way of seeing and experiencing life experiences for the first time. It can, however, be challenging sometimes to understand why they do the things that they do. Sometimes, it can even be frustrating when they don't meet our expectations, or worse, it seems they don't even want to try. I like to work with children and understand the issues they are dealing with, and ultimately help them respond more positively to the requests and direction of their parents and educators.

You know when something is wrong with your child. It can be a divorce, a school or family problem. But, if your child is hurting, then your are hurting. Children require a therapist with special skills. I have extensive training in many forms of play therapy. Children are not able to communicate in the usual way. With play, their defenses are down and they can relate in a natural way. We have games, sand trays, art supplies, etc that are age appropriate for your child. As a mother of four children I understand your concerns and will do my best to help your child heal from the stresses they are experiencing. I know how precious your child is to you.

I have always enjoyed working with young children, and have worked with that age group for most of my career. I pride myself on my ability to age appropriately engage them in the therapeutic process and also find it very important to engage and include parents in their child's treatment as they are the children's main support system. I have worked with families with young children for issues ranging from developmental delay to behavioral issues.

There just isn't anything much worse than hearing that your beautiful child has been identified by a teacher or even another mother-father as having a "problem".Most parents respond,at first, with denial. It is just too difficult to accept that there may be a real issue brewing or that one has already taken hold. I am highly skilled at diagnosing all forms of psychologically based childhood disorders but even more important, as a mother who has raised a special needs child I know how to help. I also know when a child has been misdiagnosed and a bit of parent training is needed. I work as an advocate in the schools combined with home visits to observe and direct parents how to cope.

I listen to children and use art and play therapy to identify unconscious problems that may be causing stress or that may have occurred outside of the parents knowledge or understanding.

I tend to take less of an approach of "talk therapy" and more of an approach of "play therapy" with young children. Children have a hard time expressing emotions, but letting them play it out or create me a picture tells me more sometimes than words can. I'm also trained in sandtray therapy, which is using small toys in a small sandbox to tell me the story or problem. Depending on the age, I do see young children individually. I also may suggest seeing them with the family to work on how this one individual is affecting everyone.

Each child is an individual with unique ways of understanding and relating to his/her surroundings as well as the surrounding of others. Generally, the ways that children respond to the stressors in their lives depend on their developmental stage and their coping skills. Stressors such as illness; divorce, loss of a pet; being taken from their family; or placement in foster care; to name a few, may lead to behavior challenges, depression or other mental problems. As a child therapist, my job is to create an environment of trust and safety, and work collaboratively with each child and his/her parent(s) to better understand their feelings and convey those feelings into words.
