I provide play therapy for children and adolescents ages 4-17 years of age. I utilize a warm, open and encouraging approach when providing therapy services to children and adolescents. It is through their play, that children allow us into their world and give us a glimpse of what may be troubling them. Depending on the age and cognitive level of the child, will determine the approach that I adapt. I understand how precious a child is to their parent or parents and I take my role as therapist very serious and will advocate on of behalf of my clients. I am dedicated to helping children recogize their feelings, cope with their pain, anger and or distress, find their voice.

Children often have trouble expressing themselves to strangers or to a Doctor. As a result, counseling can involve hours of building trust with a child and allowing the child to express themselves freely through play and imagination. Counseling a child can not be engaged in effectively when the parents are not involved in the process. Counseling the parents in communication skills that enhance bonding, boundary implementation, and behavior modification are essential if a child is to grow in healthy ways.

Everyone experiences pain / sadness at some point. Even we as adults though sometimes cannot explain what we are experiencing and exactly why. For our children, they will be less likely to verbalize what is happening for them and more likely to act it out. Our children need to be given the tools to best express their wants and needs, as well as whatever emotions and thoughts they are experiencing. Let's give them a voice and teach them the healthy ways.

In working with young children, I seek to establish a relationship of trust while supporting the child's relationship with his or her parent(s) or caregiver(s). Because the end goal is for the child to no longer need my services, it is very important that I work collaboratively with the parents and transfer any new skills and trust to the primary relationship. Techniques that I use include structured and unstructured play therapy, sand tray, bibliotherapy (which incorporates the use of topical picture books with play and discussion), and art therapy, as well as behavioral therapy assignments to assist parents in shaping problem behaviors. Your precious children are treated as such!

Therapy with young children may involve at least one parent. Sometimes parents want therapy for young children who need to have limits. Kids can be a handful. Using a behavior modification approach with tools parents can achieve realistic results and a child's behavior can be shaped and improved. How to nourish and discipline simultaneously can be an issue.

I utilize play therapy methods with young children to help them express their emotions in the way that is normal and appropriate for kids, through play! The kids I treat often have a good time while they work through their emotional problems of fear, anger, or sadness towards someone important in their lives. They can work out their aggressions on clay figures and their fears and sadness through paintings. I believe that the indirect approach of play therapy is developmentally appropriate for young children because they are not yet ready for the "adult" techniques of talk therapy.

We are delighted to work with children of all ages. Initially, I will have myself or one of my clinical staff conduct a clinical interview or assessment, and I will evaluate their level of functioning, cognitively, emotionally, academically, socially, and behaviorally and determine a customized solution that will help your child achieve the highest level of success possible.

Have you noticed changes in your child's behavior that concerns you? Perhaps your child has experienced stressful changes and losses in life that make you wonder how well they are coping. Perhaps your child seems more withdrawn and quiet, or maybe he or she seems anxious and worried much of the time. Sometimes, children can be the barometers of how their particular family is coping with the stresses of life. If you have concerns about your child know that help is available. I bring years of experience in the "trenches" and now work with children around 10 years of age or older who may have forgotten how special they really are. Nothing is more precious than the heart of your child!

Young Children from approximately six years of age and older benefit GREATLY from counseling! They are usually READY to share their feelings and thinking more easily with a good counselor than even with their parents, sometimes. The REASON for this is often related to their desire to PLEASE and WIN their parents' approval--a very deep NEED of all children. PARTICULARLY, if there is a change in the family dynamics, children fear NOT pleasing their parents; they can close up for a season, often leading them into childhood depression. I AM that GOOD counselor that children will SHARE with; I HELP change family dynamics successfully, when families are committed to the counseling process!

One of my specialties is working with elementary age (and adolescents). A child or young person's struggles with difficult feelings and unhelpful behaviors can impact the rest of his or her life. Addressing these challenges during the child's critical developmental years can rebalance and set the stage for a happier and healthier future. I have a special feeling for young people in distress, and feel my professional and life experience has enabled me to be especially attuned to their feelings, needs, and pain. I have over 13 years experience working with children facing emotional and behavioral challenges. Please feel free to call.
