Quality parent-child relationships are ones that are mutually enriching and promote the emotional, mental growth of children and parents alike. Parents need skills that gain the cooperation and mutual respect of their children, to be more effecting correcting problem behaviors. They need to know how to create an environment for emotionally safe, positive and open communications -- which builds healthy relationships. Therapy can support parents to set firm limits yet avoid punitive tactics, resolving conflicts in ways that empower children to cooperate and parents to transform conflict into growth and trust, and motive children to willingly contribute and maximize potential.

Helping young children takes building a collaborative relationship with the parents, and offering parental guidance. We assess the developmental tasks and needs of that child, and sometimes suggest child-centered play therapy or play therapy. We also offer Sand-tray therapy, which allows children to show us their inner worlds in images and motion. EMDR can be helpful with building inner resources and over-coming traumatic experiences, such as medical procedures. Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, we look at children’s problems in the context of their whole lives. Sometimes helping parents learn to play with and understand the meaning of their children’s actions is the magic.

Children need an outlet to discuss worries and stressors just like adults do, but need to do this in a way that makes sense to them. Therapy can include art and play in order to allow a child to express their feelings, sometimes when there are no words to do so. Parents benefit from a better understanding of their child, and many times are integral to the counseling process.

Do you have young children and find yourself having a hard time managing your emotions and setting boundaries consistent with your own values and upbringing? This is the challenge of many parents. We are often given well-intentioned parenting techniques that are difficult to implement. This is not because we are not intelligent, but because it is likely that you have not worked through your own emotional issues to be most effective for your child. Through therapy, we can help you face unresolved issues so that you can be a more calm and effective parent.

When a child displays a problem behavior it indicates either an unmet need or an inadequate or inappropriate boundary in one of more relationship. Unlike play therapists, my focus is on increasing positive and cooperative interactions between the child and his/her parents and caregivers and teaching the child positive coping skills to deal with anger, sadness, and disappointment. Most change for children happens outside of the therapy room, so it is important for parents, caregivers, and teachers to be informed and/or involved in the therapy process.
