Stress, pressure, chaos, bullying - children are deeply affected by realities way beyond their control or ability to manage or understand. The effects of family tensions, strife, discord and conflict can manifest in physically, emotionally and behaviorally. A tummy ache, difficulty sleeping, acting out, more anxiety or anger than normal are all signs that a child is experiencing more stress than they can handle. Using age-appropriate language and therapies, I provide immediate symptom relief that helps the child and the parent understand what is causing the symptoms and what to do about them in 1 to 3 sessions.

Children are often misunderstood by grown-ups because they tend to express their feelings and perceptions through actions instead of words, and grown-ups often find these actions challenging or troublesome, which in turn leads to more misunderstanding. My approach with a child is thus to develop a therapeutic rapport, so the child can understand that he or she won't be judged personally for his or her actions or difficulties. This encourages the child to express him- or herself honestly and to appreciate counseling as an opportunity. I often also work closely with the parent(s) or guardian(s) since they play such an important part in the child's life and in how that child thinks and feels.

Young children learn through play. There are many therapeutic techniques that are used through play to help a child express themselves and figure out what is going on internally or externally. A child will also learn to express themselves in emotional, verbal and physcial constructive ways. One of the first things I will do seeing your child is create a relationship that is Honest, Open, Purposeful and Engaging. A child who sees me will laugh, have fun, feel comfortable and learn how they are in control of their behavior. Parents are also important part of therapy for children. Parents will receive education and skills that will assist their child with success.
