Children face many challenges today that can seem overwhelming. Often they have difficulty expressing their feelings properly and/or managing their behavior. As a family specialist, I employ a variety of child-friendly strategies to help children learn how to confront their challenges and exercise control over their thoughts, feelings and behavior. I am a contributing author on the subject of play therapy in two clinical books and have a playroom filled with puppets, arts, sand tray, an imaginative games that provide a means for children to engage in counseling as a positive experience.

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.

I realize that children go through many life stresses and challenges. They face divorce, blended families, peer pressure , bullying, death, illness, and sometimes genetic problems with ADD, ADHD, Autism, Aspergers, and Tourette Syndrome. For young children who many times have trouble putting their thoughts and feelings into words, play therapy is utilized. For the older child we incorporate talk therapy. Your participation will be an important part of helping your child. Counseling sessions that are separate from your child will help to understand what is happening at home, to measure your childs progress, and to make suggestions to help you. Family therapy is provided when appropriate.

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.

Childhood is a unique period in life in that this is when rapid development occurs. Each experience a child has is particularly influential and may result in a lasting impact. Developmental, familial, social, educational, and environmental factors all weigh in on a child's experience. As such, it is important that children grow in a nurturing environment that caters toward their needs. Child counseling (through play therapy) meets children where they are at to help them not only work through issues but develop in a healthy manner. Helping a child early enough may resolve years or even a lifetime of issues in adulthood.

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.
