Is your child struggling with nightmares, tantrums, fear, bed wetting, incontinence, or trauma? We strongly feel that early intervention is the best method. Rather than allowing patterns and behaviors to become ingrained, we help children through expressive play therapy to process emotions, confront fears, and develop new skills/behaviors. We often find that parents are too close to their children to see when there are significant problems developing and it is the voice of teachers, friends, or other parents that make subtle suggestions about getting your child some additional resources. Pay attention to those suggestions they might see something you do not see. We are here to help!

As a counselor over many years, I have seen children struggling with many challenges, such as peer pressures, bullying at school, fear and intimidation about dealing with their challenges. My therapeutic interventions have been beneficial to restore confidence for the children suffering from low self-esteem. I have helped some children to regain control over their anger and become happier in life.

Sometimes kids, like adults, can benefit from therapy. Therapy can help kids develop problem-solving skills and also teach them the value of seeking help. Therapists can help kids and families cope with stress and a variety of emotional and behavioral issues. Many kids need help dealing with school stress, such as homework, test anxiety, bullying, or peer pressure. Others need help to discuss their feelings about family issues, particularly if there's a major transition, such as a divorce, move, or serious illness. At Thrive Counseling- we utilize play therapy as a research supported modality in working with young children. Play Therapy with children is very different from that with adults as c....

Many times, child therapists overdo the family system in their quest to seek effective solutions for emotional, learning or behavioral concerns with young children.

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!

Triple Board Certified, Licensed Psychiatrist
110 North Park Drive, Fayetteville, GA
I am board certified by The American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology in the sub-specialty of child and adolescent psychiatry. Therefore, I am well qualified to treat the delicate needs of young children in the counseling process. The type of therapy I use heavily depends on the age of the child. Play therapy is often used for young children (5 and under), and children-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, DBT, mindfulness and relaxation techniques are used for older children (6 and older). Like any other health condition, early intervention is key to helping to prevent a more detrimental outcome. Please don't wait another day. We are here to help.

Is your child "out of control" and will not listen to anything you say? Or maybe your child has "ants in their pants" and cannot sit still or focus? I can help! Children are my passion. They are our tomorrow so I will invest in them today. Children have a lot to say, but most adults don't speak "kid language." I do! When I work with a child, I want them to know they are "seen and heard." That makes all the difference. Through play therapy, a child feels safe enough to "act out" emotions, past/current traumas, and struggles through the toys they choose and in themes of play. Once a child works through their play, symptoms often times subside.
