As a Family Therapist I frequently deal with the stresses that marital conflicts have on the rest of the family. The impact of these difficulties on the kids often results in behavioral problems that further stress the already burdened couple. I can help to relieve the stresses on the family system by listening to each child carefully and with empathy for her plight. When compassionate listening is provided to children in the presence of other family members, healing begins.

Many times, child therapists overdo the family system in their quest to seek effective solutions for emotional, learning or behavioral concerns with young children. And many times doctors overpathologize issues that shouldn’t be medicated necessarily. This leaves parents wondering what is the best route for their child? 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! Without any external force, opinion, medication, diagnostic, etc. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 877-606-6161.

Often times children are struggling with issues in their own life and cannot communicate their need for help. It is a parent's job to recognize when something is not right. Helping children identify problems and work through them is a skill that lasts a lifetime. My work with children is based on trust. Only when they feel safe will they begin to reveal their inner thoughts and fears. This is achieved mainly through play therapy and parent child sessions.

Parents today often feel anxious and confused about how to strike the balance between their role as loving caregivers and disciplinarians. I work with parents and children to: 1. improve parents’ understanding of their child’s development 2. using play, picture books, and talk, create an atmosphere in which both parents and children feel respected and understood 3. develop a clear and effective approach to discipline 4. explore, when indicated, the impact of parents' childhood struggles as it affects their capacity to parent effectively 5. strengthen the marital relationship to model healthy communication

When a child needs help its not just the child entering into therapy, its the parents as well. As I work with children I make the parents essential components of the treatment team. If the work is not being followed through at home then change is not going to be possible. Let's face it our kids are smarter than we are in some ways and absorb so much. By helping the parents learn new skills that are specific to their children and help them at home, change is not only possible its inevitable.

Children have a developmental need to play. Children of divorce experience grief and loss and benefit from play and recognition of feelings & emotions.My work helps reinforce attention, focus & "on task" behavior. We do role plays/ improvs, creative arts, music & sensory integration. I assist children in recognition & practice of appropriate social skills to increase peer success at home & at school. I collaborate with teachers,school staff and parents to utilize a team-approach. Students who have academic challenges most often experience anxiety, depression and/or social struggles, I work with the family to enhance skill deficits and provide support to child and their family.

You know when something is wrong with your child. It can be a divorce, a school or family problem. But, if your child is hurting, then your are hurting. Children require a therapist with special skills. I have extensive training in many forms of play therapy. Children are not able to communicate in the usual way. With play, their defenses are down and they can relate in a natural way. We have games, sand trays, art supplies, etc that are age appropriate for your child. As a mother of four children I understand your concerns and will do my best to help your child heal from the stresses they are experiencing. I know how precious your child is to you.

Our children are the key to success! Teaching awareness, helping their personalities to form, and teaching effective parenting is the best combination for creating healthy children. Play therapy is the approach I think works best with young children. Parents can learn ways to parent their children that promote emotional development. Counseling young children is a family affair.
