Parenting can lead to you to experience the greatest of joys and the deepest of valleys. The stresses of having young children can leave you depleted and overwhelmed. The challenges of some childhood disorders can leave you feeling powerless. My approach is to carefully assess the issues your child is facing and find appropriate solutions and support for your child.You will always be included and supported in comprehensive treatment goals. My goal is to have you once again experience joy and laughter as you raise your child. To accomplish this, I can utilize non-traditional alternative therapies such as art, play and equine assisted psychotherapy.

Are you worried about your child? Is your child stressed? I'm here to help! I specialize in working with youth ages 3-25. Young children tend to communicate through their actions, and it's the adults' job to figure out what they are saying. I support both the child and the parent. Even good parents need support sometimes! Play therapy and Theraplay (working on parent-child connection) are two helpful types of therapies I do to assist stressed kids. Counseling is one of the most loving things you can do for a child. Give me a call today and we can figure out together what is causing your child distress and start right away on making life more fulfilling for you and your child.

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.

Young children can often leave parents struggling to understand them and their behaviors. Many parents become frustrated and feel helpless when their children are acting out or struggling. I work with parents to help them understand what their child might be going through from a developmental perspective and provide parents with tools they can use to help improve their parenting relationship with their children. While some children may still need to see a child psychologist, many children show improvements with these changes and the parent child bond is strengthened.

Young children have very unique ways of managing and expressing feelings. Not only do they see the world in a different way than adults but they express their feelings and thoughts very differently than adults. Through counseling we can help you and your family identify the root cause if behaviors and give a safe place for your little one to talk, play and explore their feelings.

Working with young children is a challenge for many people because it involves speaking their "language" which often involves play, art and other expressive therapies. As a trained child and adolescent counselor, I have had experience working with children as young as three in the realm of expressive therapies to play out what is going on in their world and ways to cope with it.

Play therapy or using play as part of the modality of communication in therapy is particularly useful when providing treatment to young children. Play is important to young children in that it is a vehicle to help them understand and process the world and others. When I see young children in therapy, I also work with the child's parents/care givers; provide psycho-education on various topics including parenting and normal childhood development; and discuss each child's strengths and challenges. Academic tutoring available.

I work with Anxious Children ages 10 and up. I find often children deny or try to hide their anxiety because it is beyond their ability to express it verbally. They have no words or experiences to be able to reference to say it. Their anxiety can be debilitating, especially if no one acknowledges it and openly talks about it. Children can have the same major feelings associated with anxiety that adults have such as: Constant and unreasonable fear, Feelings of loneliness, Sadness, Feeling of lack of power or helplessness, or Associated psychosomatic pains, such as: headache or digestive problems.
