Children are special and they need a special kind of therapy to allow them to share in developmentally appropriate ways. I am a Registered Play Therapist with specialized training and credentials to work with children. Many therapists will work with children, but I encourage you to ask about their training and credentials. Play therapy is a structured, theoretically based approach that builds on children's normal communicative and learning process. Play therapy helps children express what is troubling them, using toys as words, and play as their language.

Working with children is a specialty and must be treated in this way. Children are most commonly brought to therapy, not on their own motivation. I am able to build a rapport with children and help them understand the benefits of therapy. I am able to engage them in healing their hurts, or lessening their anxieties, or even empowering them to control their own behavior. I have built my life around working with and relating to children, and nothing gives me more pleasure than to watch them succeed and gain all that life has to offer.

Children and Adolescents have obstacles today that were not present even 10 years ago. There is a huge generational gap that I can help connect. The expectations on young women and men are quite different and much more than they were before. I can help children and adolescents become connected to themselves and reconnected to their parents. This opens the path to mindful-freedom for the whole family.

Children many times do not even know how they feel about their circumstances and often have difficulty communicating it. Even if they did know many times they won't share it with a parent out of fear. Therapy helps a child overcome difficult emotions, learn how to regulate them in a healthy way, and provides valuable feedback for the parents. There are specific tools used that provide a child the ability to express their feeling accurately.

Children can often frustrate us more than any other age group. Well, maybe not teenagers. But have you forgotten that you were once a child? Yes, we have all been there before. We have all been through that period of life where we are curious about the world, curious about ourselves, have an incredible imagination, and playing is the greatest thing ever. Yet, we're still trying to learn about what's right and wrong. We don't understand the world and why things happen. We just know we're sad, but we don't know why.

Dr. Kteily takes a family systems approach when working with clients. She assesses not only the individual but the family as well as other environments the person is active in. This gives Dr. Kteily a complete picture of the person's life and where changes need to be made. Of course some topics require a sharper approach such as addiction, anxiety and panic, and depression. Dr. Kteily works closely with each individual's physicians to manage their symptoms while helping each person find the root cause and eradicate it.

As a counselor, I see children ages 4-12 every day in my school counseling position. I've also taught k-8 for 20 plus years as well as been a parent to two children and a step-parent to a daughter who is an adult now. Children involved in play therapy are usually able and willing to work through problems. Involving the parents in the therapy is an important part of this process, as well.
