Children experience depression, anxiety, fears, uncertainties, self-esteem issues, and confusion. Sometimes, their experiences are even bigger than an adults because they feel that they have so little power to change their situation or who they are. Play Therapies of all sorts helps young children explore, express and resolve such reactions so they can become free and fully functioning. Childhood anger is also often an expression of fear, self-hatred, feeling powerless or confused too. Dr. Carol Francis has been working with children (and their parents), ages 3-18 since 1977 in clinics, hospitals, schools and now in her private practice. Call 310-543-1824

When children feel accepted the way they are, they are free to change. I create a safe place in which a child can express his or her emotions and feel understood and valued. Opportunities within the session for responsibility, decision-making, and control help children trust and accept themselves. In therapy, play is for children what words are for adults. Children work through and reveal their thoughts and feelings through their play. Lacking the extensive vocabularies and associations of meanings that adults have, children often are more comfortable exploring and expressing themselves through play, games, and art.
