Children require a particular speciality to work with in that they can tell if an adult is talking down to them or not. I find by communicating with a child on their level, about their worries and fears, no matter their age, I will be able to connect with them over what they feel they need to work on. Along with their parent's guidance and input, I have been able to successfully modify problem behaviors within the family home and at school. I also have extensive experience in trauma work, with children going through a family transition, or recovering from abuse.
