Children today face a number of pressures and are expected to succeed in a social climate that is often fast paced, hidden from the view of adults and highly stressful. Many younger children begin to show signs of distress and anxiety at an early age. Anxiety disorders among children are often a precursor to major depressive disorders. Social anxiety, school phobia, , PTSD and phobias are all treatable conditions. Early treatment can help the child develop resilience and may inoculate them against more severe disorders in adolescence. I work with families and children together to build new skills that can help calm themselves, strengthen confidence and develop new coping skills.

Although I work with persons of all ages, the heart of my practice is children ages 3-12. Imagine being angry, but when asked to describe how you're feeling, you could not use the word "angry." For children, toys are their words, and not giving them an opportunity to play out their feelings with toys is like taking away their words right before asking them to describe how they feel. Where adults use words, children use play to communicate and make sense of the world around them. As a result, I use a variety of play-based techniques to allow children to explore ways to handle challenges, transitions and feelings -- at their own developmental level & in their own language.

Alongside my Master's degree in Counseling Psychology, I have a specialization in Child and Adolescent Development. I have over ten years of experience in providing outpatient counseling to children. I am a National Certified Counselor and Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor. I employ Play Therapy, Sand Tray Therapy, and Expressive Art Therapy when providing counseling to children. This provides them a chance to explore, process, and heal without having to use the vocabulary we as adults use in the therapeutic process. By providing various creative outlets, children are able to correlate their play experience with emotions; there by expanding their vocabulary while growing.

Children are unable to express complex ideas and emotions in the same manner as adults. They express their feelings through play. In therapy, they are encouraged, through play, to lead the sessions much in the same way an adult would lead their therapy session. Working with children requires the ability to understand children on their level. Too often, adults speak to them as if they were adults and interpret their conversations on an adult level. I have been working with children for 20 years and have experience in helping them cope with PTSD, trauma, abuse, grief, stress, anxieity and other issues.
