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.

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!

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.

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.

Our therapists specialize in utilizing a wide range of therapeutic modalities including Play Therapy, Narrative therapy, Child Solution Focused Therapy, Art therapy, and Sand Tray therapy. Therapists help children and their parents to find their inner voice, express themselves, find healing from trauma, adjust to life changes, and discover their own personal and unique strengths.

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.

I work with children who are 9 years of age and older depending on their verbal ability. Young children who are verbal can benefit from "talk therapy". I also use play therapy techniques when applicable. This includes art, games, books and more based on your child's individual needs. Areas I work with children on vary; divorce, grief, school, blended families, bullies, self-esteem, eating disorders, anxiety, depression and more. Family therapy is always useful when working with children. The support of a parent is extremely helpful when a child is in counseling. I offer parenting techniques for moms and dads. Inquire, depending on your needs. Siblings are welcome to join meetings when needed

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!
