I have seen at least 1000 children and adolescents. Each one is different! Many have had learning disabilities, and many have had Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Some have had Trichtoillomania (compulsive hair pulling), or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) or Tourettes. With these a behavior therapy approach has been most useful. For younger children, I use play therapy as well as parent consultations. Parents need to be involved but they also usually need to allow the child to talk freely. for play therapy, I use puppets and/or drawing activities at the little table and chairs in my office. I might need to assess the child formally to determine any learning problems.

Many times, child therapists overdo the family system in their quest to seek effective solutions for emotional, learning or behavioral concerns with young children.

Play is the language of children. While adults might be able to "talk out" their emotional conflict, children "play out" their problems. Play therapy accesses the language of children and creates a safe emotional distance from their conflict so that they can find healing and internal strengths that help them to navigate their life challenges now and in the future.

Through the use of play therapy, art therapy and talk therapy I am able to help children move through issues that are effecting their behavior and ability to develop as well adjusted children. It is with several modalities that I have found the most success when working with children. I work with children beginning at the age 3 through adolescents, and have seen hundreds of children graduate from therapy with me successfully..

Is your child uncooperative? Having trouble getting along with others? I can get to know your child and his or her struggles through play-based therapy. I will also teach you how to help your child tolerate his emotions and regulate his behavior. In their early years, children rely on their parents to "co-regulate" themselves. In fact, a child's nervous system is not fully capable of "calming down" until he is about 9 or 10 years old. So our kids are uniquely dependent on us to help them bounce back from life's struggles and difficulties. I will help you develop the tools and strategies you need to help your child develop into the unique person he was meant to be. I invite you to contact me.
