Family coaching is very popular. More and more parents whose child is being bullied in school or in the neighborhood. Many times, their child has difficulty expressing his or her feelings and will begin to manifest somatic complaints such as stomachaches, headaches, school refusal, and/or acting out in school. Play therapy is one way to address bullying. We provide psychoeducational testing for children with behavior and or learning problems.

Introducing brainwave optimization technology. A fast, effective, natural, and less expensive way to allow your child's brain to make the optimizing changes it desires to make---on its own!

I see children ages three to eighteen. I specialize in treating both behavioral problems and emotional problems. I treat depression, anxiety, and ADHD. I use play therapy to help children express their feelings which helps to reduce behavioral problems and emotional issues. I also work with parents to improve communication with their children, as well as parenting skills.

Ashburn Psychological Services has child psychologists available to assess and treat children from 2 years of age through childhood. Our child psychologists have training in play therapy, behavioral therapy and parenting work. Typically, psychologists who work with younger children work with both the child and the parents when addressing a developmental, social/emotional or behavioral concerns. At times meetings with the parents and not the child is the preferred method. Developmental testing and neuropsychological testing is also available at Ashburn Psychological Services.

I have seen at least 1000 children and adolescents. Each one is different! Many have had learning disabilities, and many have had Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Some have had Trichtoillomania (compulsive hair pulling), or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) or Tourettes. With these a behavior therapy approach has been most useful. For younger children, I use play therapy as well as parent consultations. Parents need to be involved but they also usually need to allow the child to talk freely. for play therapy, I use puppets and/or drawing activities at the little table and chairs in my office. I might need to assess the child formally to determine any learning problems.

Working with young children is a unique skill. As young children are less able to verbalize their stressors than are older children and adults, I utilize non-verbal tools to help them both express their needs and help them to work on solutions. I use sand tray therapy in my office which gives children ownership over their "world" by using figurines and toys to play out their personal situations. I also use art therapy with young children; both free form and structured activities during the session. Playing games with a young child gives me a way to learn how they adapt to rules and limits as well as giving the child a way to experience some fun while in the midst of productive therapy

We use sandbox and play therapy to provide the young with alternatives in creative expression, and to let them know that there is a safe holding place where their fears can be confronted, and respected. Often, we also help the children best by helping the parents find peaceful ways to reach common ground on child-rearing practices and responses. The most crucial element is to treat a child, not a diagnosis or condition.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

600 Wyndhurst Ave, suite 112, Baltimore, Maryland 21210

My primary goal of working with children and adolescents is to focus on strengths and build upon those strengths. Instead of focusing on problems, which can be exhausting and emotionally draining, I like to build on the strengths of individuals in order to empower and encourage them to make positive changes in their lives. The more they are able to recognize their own past solutions the easier it is for them to repeat those solutions in order to achieve their goals, as opposed to having another adult tell them what to do.
