Young children who experience symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, oppositional behaviors, aggression, poor peer relationships, or academic problems are a joy to work with. I require a parent to be present when I work with children under 6 years old, as the parent must learn how to repeat what we do in the session at home. I use play therapy, expressive arts therapy, and animal assisted therapy with young children, as I've found these to be the most effective interventions. Parents can participate in family therapy with their child, and sometimes we may meet separately to discuss their child's treatment. One great thing about counseling children is that they are so capable of change.
