I work with young children in the context of their family dynamic. The greatest effect on the development of children are the family relationships, and then the relationships outside the family. It is powerfully transformative and healing to work in the family context to bring about healing and growing relationships. When that happens, everyone benefits.

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.

I am the mom of two "20-somethings", so I understand the struggles of parenting kids today. Let me be clear; I do NOT have a degree in early childhood education, nor am I a child psychologist. It's hard to know today how much freedom to give kids, so that they gain necessary confidence, and at the same time, balance with proper guidance without being a "helicopter parent". I promise to guide you, using evidence-based techniques, to empower you as a parent, as well as to help support your child in developing the resiliency skills needed to thrive and flourish in today's world.

Like adults, a child’s behavior can change when (s)he is feeling stressed out. Common symptoms are suddenly seeming withdrawn, worried, stressed, sulky or tearful. Therapy can help kids improve their problem-solving skills and also teach them the value of seeking help. The kinds of problems that are addressed include: school stress (homework, bullying or peer pressure), family issues (parents fighting, impending divorce or other transitions like a loss, move or serious illness). If you feel your child might have an emotional or behavioral problem or needs help coping with a difficult life event, trust your instincts and call for a consultation.

Children have a developmental need to play. Children of divorce experience grief and loss and benefit from play and recognition of feelings & emotions.My work helps reinforce attention, focus & "on task" behavior. We do role plays/ improvs, creative arts, music & sensory integration. I assist children in recognition & practice of appropriate social skills to increase peer success at home & at school. I collaborate with teachers,school staff and parents to utilize a team-approach. Students who have academic challenges most often experience anxiety, depression and/or social struggles, I work with the family to enhance skill deficits and provide support to child and their family.

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.

Young children experience many of the challenges faced by older siblings and adults in their families with fewer internal resources to meet them. They can more easily feel overwhelmed and distressed by family losses, change, or unexpected disruptions from their routine. For many the transition to pre-school or elementary school can be difficult and disorienting. Some young children previously considered energetic, find they cannot sit still and focus the way their peers seem to do easily in the classroom. Increasingly, we are learning that even very young children can and do suffer with mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Capital Counseling provides counseling to young children and their...(view profile to read more)

I have worked with a 4 year old child of divorced parents. These children are at risk for "disorganized attachment", a precursor to childhood separation anxiety. I feel the therapist needs perfect rapport to work with such a delicate situation. I use drawing, cartoons, CD's, dancing, and cookies. I may wish to consult with an MD. If the child tends to disassociate from reality, I'm afraid a child psychiatrist would need to be brought in.
