Children are such a blessing! Children have a way of dealing with life issues different from adults and a lot of times are very resilient. Counseling for children can range from difficulty in school, behavioral issues, parental divorce, loss of a loved one, etc.... The approach for counseling children is different from that of counseling adults. In counseling children the use of play is important and often times more effective than talking alone. Children might be asked to draw, use puppets, make scenes in a sand tray, or even play therapeutic board games with the counselor and a family member. Children will use the skills learned to help with future situations.

I remember the frustration as a young mother with no experience and bringing home my first child. In today's societies, families often do not live near each other, so we lack the support we once had. Children do not come with manuals. I raised three and unfortunately, I made mistakes too. I hope that I can teach you how to be a positive parent which I learned through my own mistakes.
