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.

I have counseled children from ages 5 through 12 in both individual and group settings for several years. My approach in working with young children is to create an atmosphere of trust, rapport and fun, and I use play therapy and art therapy to build that trust and rapport. I have helped more children in counseling playing board games, sports or anything that allows them to want to talk to me, because I care about who they are and what they need to do if they are to trust me and talk to me, with honest and sincerity, and with a gut-level trust that I care about them and want only the best for their lives.

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.

Clinical & School Psychologist / Clinical & School Social Worker

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 young children from the age of 5 yrs, depending on their language skills. This is usually in a family therapy setting. I work with older children on issues of ADHD, Impulse Disorders, and Oppositional Defiant Disorder, truancy, school compliance....from age 10+ (depending on the maturity of the child). I have successfully raised a boy with ADHD, who is now a 28 yr-old man successful as an International Account Executive. Trust me we knew he had ADHD before he was old enough to be tested for it! EARLY INTERVENTION IS THE KEY!!! Loving behavior modification - with or without meds. The parent will need to sign a consent form allowing me to treat anyone under the age of 18.
