Children may be included in marital or in family therapy, if desired, because parenting issues can impact marriages. We have had success in providing effective help for parents struggling with conflicting parenting styles, as well as helping children find effective coping methods for depression, anxiety, self-esteem, shyness, etc. It is important to provide skills to the parent to help the child and provide healthy lifestyle choices as a foundation for young children's mental health. An individual child can be treated if the parents are also available to be included in the treatment at some level.

Play is a child's first language. Play therapy treats children in their native "language."
I have two decades of play therapy experience, and a clinician on staff whom I am mentoring in play therapy, I have around 15 years of experience providing clinical supervision and consultation.
Currently my practice is limited to older children (typically 12 and up), teens, and adults. However, I pay close personal attention to every case my associate treats. In addition, I love to work with (all-too-often neglected) parents. YOU need support to be able to help your child. Together, we can help meet the needs of you AND your child.

Is your child out of control? Choosing behaviors which concern you? Seeing distress or anything unusual in youth can be unnerving. This is why Joe begins by educating parents and children on the nature of their issues. He then seeks to create a cohesive network of support between care givers, himself, school, and any other collaterals in the child’s life. Joe utilizes a blend of client centered and play therapy with youth in order to help give them a strong voice in this network as well. Call or email today to begin finding solutions.

Young children are a joy to work with. They approach each person, object, or even a sunset with such appreciation and wonder. As a former preschool teacher I integrate my teaching experience with my counseling training to provide comprehensive and child centered play therapy. Children communicate their thoughts and emotions through their play and toys; I am here to listen, care, and understand. My office has a private play are with a wide variety of toys so children can feel free to express their feelings, emotions, and worries. As a former teacher I understand parents' concerns, and will keep consistent communication between me and the child's parents.

I can work with children who are verbal from 6 or 7 and up. I can also treat them with EMDR. When I work with a young child, I insist that the parents see me seperately at least once to get a feel for the dynamics of the family and if there have been any losses, or traumas in the family.
Having rased children myself I know how to help children feel "safe"and comfortable with me.

I am a court appointed special advocate which means that I must be very careful with taking just children without the family or foster family intake. This is a new area for staying connected center. I will work with young children if they come in as a family and then they demonstrate the need and ability to handle a one on one session. Therapy for the younger children will include the possibility of reaching out to their teachers, coaches, and other support individuals
