I work with children as young as two or three years of age if they are verbal. In addition, I work with the family system to make the changes needed to help them work as a family unit or team. Play therapy is the avenue that allows children to express themselves or to work through situations or issues that are creating stress for the child. Hands-on activities, therapeutic games, exercises, puppets, roleplays, sandtray, and bilbliotherapy are some of the strategies I use to help the child find healing, to help them learn to make good choices, and to be effective problem-solvers and leaders.

Parenting is not an easy task and sometimes it becomes a burden when our little ones act out. Children do not act out randomly, there is something that bothers them and is hurting them. Children, as all of us, need to feel cared for and important in the lives of significant others. When they act out, they most likely do not get the best out of their caretakers, feeling unimportant and not cared for. It is crucial to help them express their feelings and help them relate with others in a more positive way. When I work with children I always involve parents and, if applicable, school to help create an environment that nurtures change and the child's strengths.

When working with children my specialities are adoption, mood disorders (such as anxiety - depression - anger), and ADHD. I offer children and parents a safe, welcoming and "child" friendly environment. Your child more often then not is already feeling tense, unsure, and a bit nervous of the counseling setting. My first job will always be to relate with your child and work to help him/her feel entirely comfortable as - progress is entirely based upon your child's relationship with me. You may find that our sessions are on the floor around a board game rather then on the chair. Give me a call to book your first appointment - I also welcome you to simply call with questions to see if we are a good fit.

Many therapists specialize in working with young children--using play therapy, for example, and I admire the work that they do. But my own approach is to hypothesize that when a child is not doing well, the problem likely resides with the parents. Thus I coach the parents to be firm and consistent. But I also coach them to work together, if they can--since child problems, seen in the context of divorcing parents, for example, might actually be a solution in that the problem is the only thing that brings the parents together as they seek to deal with the child. So resolving the parents' issues often is the key. The child cannot be made (however unintentionally) responsible for family unity.

Sadly, I am seeing younger and younger children coming into therapy with eating disorders. I work with a family based model to help families learn the skills required to intervene to help children begin road to recovery. Frequently, exposure therapy is a big piece of this work where families work with me to learn ways to re-introduce foods back into the child's meal plan.

Therapy with a young child is often a multi-tiered approach. Part of the process focuses on fostering a sense of comfort, support, and understanding for the child who may be feeling frustrated, unsuccessful, anxious, or depressed about life circumstances. Therapy also incorporates strategies for aiding the child to make behavioral changes in areas where he or she is currently struggling. Finally, therapy brings parents into the process by helping them gain a comprehensive understanding of what drives their child, and how they can then direct their child in more adaptive ways which allot for more successful life experiences. Similar to adults, children enter therapy for a broad array of reasons. W....
