Helping you find wholeness...

Location: 353 West 48th Street, 3rd Floor, New York

Young children are not little adults but yet they are whole people. Children process things differently but also exhibit good resilience in many situations. In working with young children, it is especially important to work with them where they are at and in ways that allow them to relate tot he journey that is being made. When this is successful, the child not only is able to find wholeness and peace in the present but have a firm foundation for finding this in the future. A dimension of working with a child is working with the adults that are significant in that child's life. Christopher looks forward to this journety together with you.

In addition to my work with adolescents and adults, I also work with young children (ages 3 to 12) using play & art therapy plus. A large component of that work is with their parent(s). After spending more than 25 years with parents who have children who are emotionally unstable, oppositionally defiant, socially shy, bullied, or otherwise struggling, I have an edge on knowing how to teach optimal parenting. In addition to my licenses as an MFT & MHC, I am also a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist & Audiologist. Hence I also work with children who are ADD, ADHD, LD, speech and/or language Impaired, & hard of hearing or deaf. When I help a child, I help the family. A double whamee.

I am knowledgeable about young children, as I have a doctorate in child psychology. I am happy to advise or help parents with young children, who are taking a little longer to potty train, having a lot of tantrums, bedwetting, falling behind in school, may have a learning disability. I work closely with the parents, and in many cases would not treat the child directly. I usually focus on and get to know the parent, how I can best support them as a parent, as a spouse, and as a person in the world.

Children counseling focuses on helping them to express feelings that they can not readily identify or talk about with parents or teachers. By developing a vocabulary related to their emotions, children get a better understanding of themselves and they become more secure and confident. When a child has a counselor that they truly connect with, it is like having a friend or confidant without the risk of peer gossip or disapproval.

A relationship built on trust is vital to the success of any treatment involving a child. The young person in treatment must feel comfortable, safe and understood, in an environment in which honest thoughts and feelings can be expressed, often for the first time. The therapeutic relationship that develops in this environment enables improved expression of feelings and behavior, leading to growth and improvement in interpersonal relationships at home, in school and elsewhere.
