I work with children ages 9 and up. Most kids struggle significantly because they don't fully understand what they're feeling or why. What's worse is that many children aren't equipped to cope with everything life throws at them. For many children, psychological issues such as anxiety or depression frequently manifest as behavioral issues (difficulty concentrating, impulsivity, physical aggression, self-injury, difficulty learning, frequent meltdowns, night terrors, etc.) or as physical symptoms (stomach aches, vomiting, insomnia, frequent diarrhea, headaches, body aches, etc.). I have 7 years of experience and specialized trainings in working with children. Let me help!

We are child specialist with over 20 years combined exclusive child training who know how to identify underlying cause of behavior difficulty. We know children inside and out! We work closely with parents and coach them. First we meet with parents alone to understand the problem, second we meet wit the child alone and third we meet again with parents to form a plan of action. You can expect sessions to follow a pattern and we build skills in your child and confidence in you as a parent. Families leave treatment feeling stronger, knowing how to handle problems in the future. Areas of expertise are anxiety; depression; ADHD, OCD, Spectrum and all behavioral issues.

Young children express themselves differently than adults, and so I will provide a safe and caring space for your child to explore their difficult emotions through play. You can also expect to participate in sessions with me and your child at times, as I believe that involving the parent(s) is key to helping children overcome their emotional struggles.

Although I do not work with very young children, I very much enjoy working with adolescents and their families. I typically require parents to be involved at times when working with teenagers. Academic and athletic stress, sibling and friendship issues, puberty and body image challenges and substance experimentation are all issues with which I can help. Often our children are the barometers of other issues occurring in either the nuclear or extended family and broadening the field of vision to these domains can be useful in working with adolescents.

I have worked with children parents and families for many years. Play therapy is an excellent way to help children process difficult emotions. Play therapy is used with children aged 3 through 11 and provides a way for them to express their experiences and feelings through a natural, self-guided, self-healing process. As children’s experiences and knowledge are often communicated through play, it becomes an important vehicle for them to know and accept themselves and others.

I can work with children who are verbal from 6 or 7 and up. I can also treat them with EMDR. When I work with a young child, I insist that the parents see me seperately at least once to get a feel for the dynamics of the family and if there have been any losses, or traumas in the family. Having rased children myself I know how to help children feel "safe"and comfortable with me.

In 60618 - Nearby to Countryside.

I work with children as young as 18-months-old to assist them in overcoming a variety of challenges. Young children who do not yet have the words to describe what they are feeling often display their emotions through negative behaviors such as biting, hitting, or tantrums. Therapy can help decrease these behaviors by teaching children how work through their big feelings rather than being overcome by them.

Raising a child can be challenging! As parents, we experience a broad range of emotions when parenting our children - these can be anything from elation, pride and joy to anger, frustration and outright bafflement. Parenting is like being on a roller-coaster, there are plenty of highs and lows and no way of getting off until the end! As parents, we all understand and accept that with patience, good discipline and consistency, those difficult moments or phases will pass and will serve as an important learning opportunity for our children moving forward. Sometimes, however, those phases seem to have no end, and our children get stuck in a pattern of destructive behaviors. Let us help!

Children are amazing and are far more intelligent, emotional and in tune to their surroundings than we often give credit for! For example, children use play to express and reflect their internal thoughts and emotions - Play IS work for the growing child, and observation of play is one of the most effective ways to gain insight to a child's inner emotions. We accomplish this communication and connetion with your child through Play therapy. Play therapy is useful in addressing: * Social Challenges * Adjustment to separation from parents. * Unresolved or suspected trauma & abuse * Anxiety * Anger * Aggression * Sudden life changes * Behavioral issues. * Potty We treat children ages 1 &up

When counseling young children, this specialization demands special skills, experience and talent. Our therapists not only address the issues that the specific child may be struggling with, whether that be ADHD, anxiety, depression, intellectual disabilities, or behavioral disorders, but also include the parents and other members of the family in treatment. This is essential to improving not only the child's health but the health of the family as a whole.

Families play an important role in children’s healing processes. The interaction between children’s problems and their families is always complex. Sometimes children develop problems as a way of signaling that there is something wrong in the family. Other times the entire family becomes distressed because the child’s problems are so disruptive. In all cases, children and families heal faster when they work together. The play therapist will make some decisions about how and when to involve some or all members of the family in the play therapy. At a minimum, the therapist will want to communicate regularly with the child’s caretakers to develop a plan for resolving problems as they are identified and to monitor the progress of the treatment.
