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.

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.

Rather than assuming a stranger has more ability to help your child, respectfully guiding you empowers you as a parent.

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.
