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.

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!
