Are you concerned about the actions and behaviors of your son or daughter? Often negative behavior on the part of a child can be a symptom of something else that is bothering them. Children often don't have the skills or resources to communicate what they are feeling or experiencing. In my work with children and teenagers, I utilize various methods of art therapy to allow them to express themselves through artistic forms of expression and creativity. I give them a safe place to come and share things they are afraid to talk about and express things they don't know how to put words to.

Is your child "out of control" and will not listen to anything you say? Or maybe your child has "ants in their pants" and cannot sit still or focus? I can help! Children are my passion. They are our tomorrow so I will invest in them today. Children have a lot to say, but most adults don't speak "kid language." I do! When I work with a child, I want them to know they are "seen and heard." That makes all the difference. Through play therapy, a child feels safe enough to "act out" emotions, past/current traumas, and struggles through the toys they choose and in themes of play. Once a child works through their play, symptoms often times subside.

When counseling young children I follow their lead. Being that advocate for young children who are unable to express how they feel in appropriate ways or being that person who they can talk to free of judgement is very rewarding for me. I am presently working towards my Play Therapist certification which is a self-directed approach for children to find that inner voice and confidence within themselves; while at the same time teaching the young ones self-control of one's emotions. I have helped young children develop coping skills to manage upsetting feelings, thoughts and behaviors; and I have also helped young children who have been victims of various degrees of traumas.

Children’s Counseling targets key issues facing children ages 9 through 12 years old. To bring resolution, a different approach is often needed with children than for teens and adults. In our Children’s Counseling meetings, we do what is needed to set kids at ease including playing board games, if needed, while engaging in the conversation to reveal and resolve the core issues each child is facing. Often a safe and objective environment is helpful to the child to clarify, express, and resolve or manage thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in a healthier way.

I try to create a space which is welcoming and kid-friendly. Children communicate best through play and it's through play therapy that children's emotions are fully expressed. Whether parents are going through a divorce or a child is simply having difficulty relating to friends in school, the therapeutic setting is helpful for giving kids the tools that they need to feel good about themselves and to succeed in life.

Is your child struggling with nightmares, tantrums, fear, bed wetting, incontinence, or trauma? We strongly feel that early intervention is the best method. Rather than allowing patterns and behaviors to become ingrained, we help children through expressive play therapy to process emotions, confront fears, and develop new skills/behaviors. We often find that parents are too close to their children to see when there are significant problems developing and it is the voice of teachers, friends, or other parents that make subtle suggestions about getting your child some additional resources. Pay attention to those suggestions they might see something you do not see. We are here to help!

Sometimes kids, like adults, can benefit from therapy. Therapy can help kids develop problem-solving skills and also teach them the value of seeking help. Therapists can help kids and families cope with stress and a variety of emotional and behavioral issues. Many kids need help dealing with school stress, such as homework, test anxiety, bullying, or peer pressure. Others need help to discuss their feelings about family issues, particularly if there's a major transition, such as a divorce, move, or serious illness. At Thrive Counseling- we utilize play therapy as a research supported modality in working with young children. Play Therapy with children is very different from that with adults as c....

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?
