Family coaching is very popular. More and more parents whose child is being bullied in school or in the neighborhood. Many times, their child has difficulty expressing his or her feelings and will begin to manifest somatic complaints such as stomachaches, headaches, school refusal, and/or acting out in school. Play therapy is one way to address bullying. We provide psychoeducational testing for children with behavior and or learning problems.

We use sandbox and play therapy to provide the young with alternatives in creative expression, and to let them know that there is a safe holding place where their fears can be confronted, and respected. Often, we also help the children best by helping the parents find peaceful ways to reach common ground on child-rearing practices and responses. The most crucial element is to treat a child, not a diagnosis or condition.

Young children who are dealing with emotional distress, often expressed in behavior, will look to primary caregivers (parents, adoptive parents/guardians) for emotional support and nurturance. The young person’s emotional/behavioral symptoms could be co-occurring with or caused by differences in parenting styles, adjustment to divorce, co-parenting arrangements, death/loss/ grief adjustments, and other stressors in the home, school, or environment. While I do not provide individual therapy for young children, I offer my skills, training and experience in family therapy to help parents/caregivers foster an effective, calm, at-ease rapport with their children, sometimes including family therapy with children present.

My primary goal of working with children and adolescents is to focus on strengths and build upon those strengths. Instead of focusing on problems, which can be exhausting and emotionally draining, I like to build on the strengths of individuals in order to empower and encourage them to make positive changes in their lives. The more they are able to recognize their own past solutions the easier it is for them to repeat those solutions in order to achieve their goals, as opposed to having another adult tell them what to do.

I see children ages three to eighteen. I specialize in treating both behavioral problems and emotional problems. I treat depression, anxiety, and ADHD. I use play therapy to help children express their feelings which helps to reduce behavioral problems and emotional issues. I also work with parents to improve communication with their children, as well as parenting skills.
