At Girls Stand Strong we specialize in working with pre-teen and teen girls. Low self-esteem, friendship problems, dating and school stress can make a girl miserable (at home and at school).

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.

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

Raising children is a difficult job. They need to feel loved and secure, and parents need to learn to be fair, firm, friendly, and consistent. I help parents and their children learn to talk and behave in a way that everyone's needs are met, through positive parenting and communication, rewards, consequences, and setting healthy limitations and expectations, young children will have a healthy self esteem and parents will feel proud of themselves and their children. I use resources a lot from the book, How to Talk so Kids will Listen and Listen so Kids will talk. Humor, praise, and therapeutic games are beneficial too!
