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.

Many times, child therapists overdo the family system in their quest to seek effective solutions for emotional, learning or behavioral concerns with young children. And many times doctors overpathologize issues that shouldn’t be medicated necessarily. This leaves parents wondering what is the best route for their child? Introducing brainwave optimization technology. A fast, effective, natural, and less expensive way to allow your child's brain to make the optimizing changes it desires to make---on its own! Without any external force, opinion, medication, diagnostic, etc. Contact or 877-606-6161.

I love kids and have two of my own that used to be young. I did my internship and worked quite a bit with families, teens, and young children. I learned how to conduct play therapy and help the child express their feelings in the form of art and play. Many times child therapy turns into family therapy because the child is not "broken" the family system is broken. Kids are resilient and tough little creatures. We can learn alot from them if we just watch and listen.
