Stress, pressure, chaos, bullying - children are deeply affected by realities way beyond their control or ability to manage or understand. The effects of family tensions, strife, discord and conflict can manifest in physically, emotionally and behaviorally. A tummy ache, difficulty sleeping, acting out, more anxiety or anger than normal are all signs that a child is experiencing more stress than they can handle. Using age-appropriate language and therapies, I provide immediate symptom relief that helps the child and the parent understand what is causing the symptoms and what to do about them in 1 to 3 sessions.

Our objective with working with young children is to be very patient and compassionate. We utilize play therapy, play-dough, art, etc. to enhance the younger children. We tend to see children who are trying to understand the issues of divorce or of losing a parent due to untimely death. We attempt to show them love and gain their trust. We keep our expectations minimal because of their age, but we seek to give them and the parent or adult strategies that are individually created for their unique situation.
