Being a parent is an exciting yet challenging role. It can be very stressful when our children experience behavior, social, emotional or academic problems. We, at Diakonos, can provide you with emotional support for dealing with troubling issues and also assist you with new techniques to manage behavior. In addition, we can assist your children in learning how to understand how they are feeling and to learn how to communicate their needs to you. Having young children may never be conflict free, however, it is possible to feel prepared to handle any situation.

I employ contemporary and alternative therapy methods when counseling children. I utilize praise, rewards, games, art, games, and music strategies to raise self-esteem. At the first visit I meet with the primary care givers to learn as much as I can about the child's difficulties. Afterward, I meet with the child alone for the majority of the sessions providing an opportunity for the child to express their feelings through the use of puppets and/or role-play. I communicate compassionately and effectively with the care givers in offering suggestions about parenting techniques and alternative ways to communicate with the child. I make myself available for home visits and in-school visits.

Play is key for everyone! Young children cannot communicate what they are feeling through words and expression like adults do. They have to tell us what is going on inside them through their play. When a child comes to my office I play a variety of games, do art projects, and allow free play to understand where they are. I believe it is also important for parents to be involved in their child's therapy. We may all play together!

Is your relationship with your child going rapidly out of control? Have you found it more and more difficult to discipline your child? Are you worried that something might be seriously wrong with a child in your life? I can help. I have been working with children and teens for over twenty years as a counselor and a minister. I come from the perspective that God has made each child beautiful. I believe that out-of-control behavior is often a child’s way of expressing things they have no other way to express. Together, we can explore new ways to interact with your child. I can help you find real-world interventions that are not only more effective, but that also work for you .

Through the technology and media advancements today our children are experiencing things so much earlier than we did as kids. This can leave children trying to make meaning out of life events and situations that we as adults struggle with. I have found that through play and art therapy we can create a space for them to process these thoughts, feelings and beliefs. The goal is to help them give voice to what they are experiencing while finding resources to help them get through it in a healthy manner.

I love working with children and have hundreds of hours of experience as well as training in many therapeutic models for children such as play therapy, art therapy, Sandtray, TheraPlay, attachment styles and more. My supervisor is a Registered Play Therapist so I will always be exposed to new ideas from an expert and you will have her knowledge assisting you as well as mine. Although I have a very mature side, I also can easily connect with my own inner child and sense of playfulness, which makes it easy to connect with children and understand their perspective and needs. I will also work intensively with parents/caregivers of children in therapy, as you will always have the most influence.
