My approach to providing therapeutic care is strongly rooted in client centered therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. Play techniques will be used as part of treatment and treatment often involve parents and/or caregivers. It is not uncommon to have session with the child alone as well as conjoint therapy withthe child and parents, siblings or families.

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.
