Children have worries, fears, intense emotions, and issues with change and past trauma, just like adults. And like adults, they sometimes need help in processing these experiences. Children do not have the same ability as adults to be able to identify, understand, and talk about their feelings. That is where play therapy comes in. In play therapy, children use play to express and process their troubles. Our therapists work closely with the parents to help their children deal with their feelings and the behavior issues that are often attached. We have several play therapists that can work with you and your children.

With training in marriage and family therapy, we're able to work with clients of all ages. It brings us great joy to work with children, and are able to use toys, games, and artwork to help them work through their emotions. Who knew...therapy could actually be fun! We even have one of our offices set up as a "Play Room" so that we can do play therapy, a wonderful way to help children heal. In addition to play therapy, we're also able to provide EMDR therapy for children, a powerful way to heal from traumatic memories. Common issues include anxiety, grief, divorce, trauma, blended families, attachment issues, problem behaviors, and abuse. We will work closely with you to help your child heal.

I counsel young children who have been through abuse with EMDR therapy. EMDR therapy has shown to work well with children who have experienced trauma. If your child has been emotionally, sexually, verbally or physically abused give them the chance to work through these issue before it is too late. Please make an appointment for your child to have EMDR therapy.

I enjoy working with young children as it allows me to fully embrace my creative and energetic side! I connect well with them, and help them understand themselves and life experiences through art and experiential therapies (including play and equine assisted therapies). I often times include the larger families in the process in a way that educates parents and strengthens the parent-child bond.
I offer home-based therapy, or the more traditional office setting.

We have therapists who see children as early as age 3 and offer play therapy and art therapy to get the children engaged. Many young children look forward to the time they spend with the therapist because it is fun and encouraging, while their parents appreciate the deeper issues that can be tackled in this non-threatening approach. We see young children for a variety of issues including sexual abuse screenings, oppositional behavior such as stealing, lying, bullying, harming animals, and general defiance toward parents, trauma, anxiety, dealing with life transitions such as parental divorce or moves, learning disabilities, autism screening, or ADHD, and general behavioral concerns.

Children process information very differently from adults and tend not to verbalize their concerns and struggles in a direct manner. Thus, when working with younger kids, I find it best to engage the children in play and/or art. During this process of creative play, kids are able to express themselves (often unknowingly and indirectly) to help aid healing and highlight present barriers to growth. Play is an excellent way for children to practice and build upon their skill set. Some examples of skills developed may include: improving overall communication skills, processing of trauma, stress management, emotional and social etiquette, and increasing cooperative and helpful behaviors

I work with children from the age of 4 up through the teenage years, on a wide range of issues. The therapy might be talk therapy, talk therapy combined with hypnosis, or play therapy, depending on the situation. I encourage parents to participate in the sessions, although with older kids, I might ask mom or dad to wait in the reception area while I continue working one-on-one with their child.
An aspect of my work with kids that both kids and their parents really appreciate is the practice of "externalizing" the problem - meaning, the problem is the problem, not the child. The kids I work with feel respected and heard, and this helps move them forward against the problem and happier!

Many times, child therapists overdo the family system in their quest to seek effective solutions for emotional, learning or behavioral concerns with young children. And many times doctors overpathologize issues that shouldn’t be medicated necessarily. This leaves parents wondering what is the best route for their child? Introducing brainwave optimization technology. A fast, effective, natural, and less expensive way to allow your child's brain to make the optimizing changes it desires to make---on its own! Without any external force, opinion, medication, diagnostic, etc. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 877-606-6161.

I treat children as young as 4 years old with anxiety and/or behavior problems. I involve parents heavily through joint sessions with the child and parent education sessions where we discuss specific issues they're facing and how to manage them. When working with young kids, I only see them 45-50 minutes a week, so it is vital that parents learn effective strategies to help their child at home between sessions.
