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.

When troubles brew, most parents think they need to get their child or teen into counseling. But the counter-intuitive move is for parents to change their movement in the dance. Counseling can be of real benefit as parents alter their behaviors, challenge their children, put down clear and consistent boundaries and rules and work together as a team to present a united front to their misbehaving or anxious child. Sometimes the child is also the most obvious indication of a family in stress. Adults can go a long ways in helping their children by working on their own issues that generate tension within the family. For more information please call or go to my website: jbragstad.com.

As a father to two young kids, I know how hard it is to see your child suffer. Together, we’ll work to overcome whatever is getting in the way of your child’s health and happiness.
“Talk therapy” isn’t always the most effective way to work with children who are experiencing emotional or behavioral problems. I’m trained in child-friendly therapeutic approaches like behavioral psychology, non-directive play, sand tray, and various experiential activities. I use a combination of these approaches that is uniquely tailored to each child, helping them heal at their own pace, in their own time.

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.

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!

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.
