“When you are feeling blue, when life gets you down, you know what you gotta do? Just keep swimming.”(Finding NEMO) I was honored to work, play, and be with children in different roles. All of them were equally beneficial. I am mom, step-mom, I was teaching children of all ages (from age 2 to age 15), I was a clinical psychologist working with terminally ill children, school psychologist at elementary and middle school, and recently even art therapist for children with a variety of disabilities. I was gifted to maintain a child in my heart and mind and to keep children’s perspective of the world. I use play therapy, art therapy, respect and admiration at work with children. They teach me!

Effective successful therapy relies on communication and the relationship between therapist and patient. Play therapy allows for the relationship, and improves the communication with children. Children live in their own world. Effective therapy goes to their world and brings back the information to the adult world. Charting behaviors and rewarding positive behaviors are effective techniques for eliminating and decreasing negative behaviors.
