Children hold a special place in my heart. Having raised four, I know this from experience – When our kids hurt, we hurt.
Aware that I am caring for your heart and soul, I attend to both you and your child with special care. Experienced with children ages 7-18 years, I utilize play and EMDR therapy for issues such as anxiety, trauma and abuse, depression, ADHD, impulse control, anger, aggression, bullying, academic under/over-achievement, adoption, as well as life transitions including loss of loved one, separation, divorce and blending families. Trained in equine-assisted therapy, I often use the power of horses to help children and teens heal. Contact me for a complimentary equine session.

Teens and children have unique needs in therapy. They want to be heard and validated. One very important aspect of therapy with children is to facilitate a trusting therapeutic relationship with the child to nurture safety. Only then will the child be able to open up and express difficult emotions and experiences. With children, I specialize in assessing for ADHD, working through traumatic experiences, anxiety/panic or OCD, adoption challanges, family changes and other behavioral issues.

At IPC we have several therapists that specialize in working with children. We also have a child psychiatrist if medication consultations are needed. Working with children requires specialized training and skills that our clinicians possess. Through a variety of play therapy techniques we can help work on the issues your child has a hard time explaining and talking about. We will work with parents collaboratively to deal with anxiety, depression, behavioral problems, and parenting techniques.

I find that I am most successful in working with children when I am able to gain trust and rapport with their parents. My personal belief is that there is no one more expert about a child than his mother or father. I also believe that the mother or father is typically the person with the greatest therapeutic capability with that child. I see my role as working with the child in collaboration with the parent. I know that to work with the child I have to work gently and patiently to gain their trust. I find that play is the language of a child so that I like to use stuffed animals, whiteboard illustrations,& lots of humor. I teach parents how to be effective in working with their own child.

Right now I am working with children 10 years old and up. I have two young children of my own at home, so I save my little-kid energy for them. If you 10-11-12 year old or "tween" is having trouble in school, with relationships, in the family, or at home, I have a lot of tools that you can use as a parent or caregiver. This is a critical time in life for many children - they are figuring out who they are, and answering important questions for themselves like "Am I capable? Am I lovable? What do I have to contribute to the world? Where do I fit in? What kinds of things will I like? Will I be okay?" If you sense that your child needs help answering these questions and more, please contact me.
