I have over 7 years experience working with children who suffer from family problems, ADD and learning disability diagnoses, and behavior problems. Working with the family as a whole, I have seen significant improvement in areas of functioning when the child is treated in relation to the family and everyone involved. I work collectively with schools, physicians and other personnel involved in the child's life to create a way for the child to live optimally without any hinderances.

I believe children are very intelligent and know exactly what they need, but they often don't know how to communicate that. As a result, they may act out or in, create unhealthy symptoms, and begin to feel all alone. Through play therapy, I help children find their voice, learn to express feelings and identify needs appropriately, and learn healthy coping skills. I also work with the family, to set boundaries that support their child/children in the growth and progress they are making. As the child changes, so does the family. Growth happens with everyone, and life is never the same.

I have been working with children and families in various capacities since the beginning of my career in 2000. I am committed that children have a voice in their families and that families work. Although today I specialize more in working with teens and their families I do work with children as young as 7 years old depending on family involvement, reason seeking therapy, and maturity of the child. Curious to see if my approach would be a fit for you and your child(ren) give me a ring 954-401-9011.

Small children aged 3 to 8 typically do not participate in family therapy because the vast majority of therapists consider such children too young to articulate their feelings or understand complex patterns of behavior. Butler thinks otherwise, as she perfects her skills using an approach called narrative therapy. Often described as “post-modern,” narrative therapy allows clients to put away old, tired versions of the stories they tell themselves [and everybody else] about their lives. Playing more to the clients’ strengths than their weaknesses, the approach urges clients to see themselves as much more than the presenting problem and to identify ways in which they are already taking steps

One of the most useful tools that I use in working with young children and their parents are behavior modification plans or also known as token economy. Behavior modification plans can be implemented with various problem areas a child may be facing. Some problem areas could be motivation, hygeine, ADHD, and defiance. These are to name only a few. I work closely with the family and child to see a productive outcome.

I help children process their emotions through play and other proven therapies. If your child has experienced an emotional upset, trauma or difficulty, I provide a safe, neutral and supportive environment for them to express their feelings and become "regulated." Their behavior will shift and they will cope with their feelings and circumstances in a new and positive way. I have worked extensively with at-risk children in the most stressful circumstances. Through play therapy, behavioral therapy and other evidence based techniques, I can assist your child with a wide range of problems, behaviors and disorders, as well as providing parenting support and education.

I currently see many of my young clients in order to provide psychological and educational testing. I provide gifted testing as well as testing for educational and behavioral issues. I have worked within the school system for over 20 years so I am able to help parents to navigate the school system and to better understand their child's IEP goals and accommodations.

So many child behavior and parenting problems simply vanish, once we understand a few basics. Children are not small adults, and should not be expected to respond the way adults do. Children, like everyone else, respond beautifully to praise, love and reward. By contrast, punishment creates only resentment and the motivation to not get caught. All the particulars flow from these simple truths. Even the most defiant and disrespectful children can quickly come around, if we simply pay a little more attention to connecting praise and rewards to desirable behavior, and withholding them for unwanted behavior.

Working with young children provides a special joy for me because children are so flexible and respond well to therapy. Not to mention, they are fun to interact with! Children are like sponges and absorb what they see and hear, even if you do not realize they are paying attention. Using play therapy, creativity, and a non-threatening approach, I am able to connect with kids and communicate with them to understand their worlds. It is imperative when working with children to include parents in the process. As a systems therapist, I know that family relationships are reciprocal, meaning each member is influenced by and responds to each other member, including children.
