I work with young children using neurofeedback, a type of biofeedback which helps regulate brainwave functioning. Neurofeedback was recently approved by the American Pediatric Association as an effective tool for addressing ADHD. The association determined that neurofeedback was just as effective as medication for ADHD. In addition, Neurofeedback is helpful for a range of conditions in both children and adults including: Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Depression, Anxiety, Migraines, Post Concussion Syndrome, and Traumatic Brain Injury. I also use Neurofeedback to help improve performance in high functioning individuals including students preparing for standardized tests.

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.

Children are our future and we want to make sure we can do everything to help them to be happy, healthy, well-adjusted individuals. At Mars and Venus Counseling Center, we see children and their parents as young as one year old. Our services include: effective parenting techniques for your child’s unique personality, anger management, behavior modification, divorce support, anxiety, depression, overcoming fears, social development, and issues at school. Depending on the age of the child, we often incorporate play therapy to communicate with children in their own language. We use puppets, dolls, clay, drawing, as well as a variety of therapy games to help children identify what is upsetting

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

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.

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.

I work with young children in the context of their family dynamic. The greatest effect on the development of children are the family relationships, and then the relationships outside the family. It is powerfully transformative and healing to work in the family context to bring about healing and growing relationships. When that happens, everyone benefits.
