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.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if kids came with owner’s manuals? Well, as parent’s know all too well, they don’t, which means that parenting oftentimes can feel like a series of trial-and-error experiences. These experiences, in turn, can sometimes leave us feeling frustrated, exhausted, exasperated and perhaps even afraid that we might be doing more harm than good. Because of this pressure and uncertainty (especially among first time parents), when I work with young children and their parents, our focus is to identify the strengths parents and children bring with them, and use this as a starting point towards addressing whatever concerns may be occurring. I utilize this approach because having worked....

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.

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.

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.

Children are not equipped with adult words to help them express what is going on within their minds and hearts and lives. With more than half our marriages ending in divorce, kids these days are suffering in a huge way that is heartbreaking. Play therapy is all about giving children a safe place to "play out" their experiences, "act out" their anxiety and anger that they don't have the maturity to understand or communicate and learn coping skills to help them find peace in a chaotic world. A must for children who have experienced loss in any form in their lives or need appropriate empowerment to overcome bullying or other obstacles they encounter on a daily basis.

I do enjoy working with young children, but I am not a play therapist. I help children six years old and older in family therapy. Sometimes this also means that I will meet with parents without their child present to gather background information as well as share diagnostic concerns and homework challenges that I give to both parents and the child. The homework challenges are helpful ways to create change in between sessions that empowers parents to see results and better understand why their child is struggling.

Play is the natural means of communication for children. Play therapy allows children to approach their problems in an age-appropriate manner. Children naturally develop problem solving, interpersonal, conflict-resolution, and coping skills through play. Play Therapy creates an intentional place for children to address the grief, hurt, loss, uncertainty, insecurity, or trauma they have experienced. Therapists help children sooth themselves, break problems into bite size pieces, develop strategies, and understand their emotions in a fashion that is familiar and comfortable to the child.
