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!

Every child has their own path and has to reach their own developmental milestones. Often times, being able to have emotional regulation or the lack there of can cause the child to have difficulties in different areas of life (i.e. interpersonal relationships, education, behavioral issues, anxiety). A child is able to perform at their optimum level once they are able to self-regulate and have the skills to do so. Providing children the space to do so through their own interests and through validation is key for a young child to feel successful in being able to manage and regulate emotions and information that the child receives from the environment. Let's improve this together!

Stress for young children can often be challenging to discern. Parents may notice that their child begins to experience a greater incidence of tantrums and/or angry outbursts, but often attribute such changes to growing up. Children may also demonstrate strict rules for their play and become upset when their schedule is changed without warning. Sometimes parents may not be able to identify obvious signs of stress in their children, but recognize that their child has encountered a number of stressors. In any of these cases, children can benefit from therapy wherein they can explore how to express their feelings and learn to process their emotions in a safe non-judgmental environment.

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.
