I work with young children if they are experiencing anxiety. Children under 6 are treated primarily by working with parents to provide them with the tools to address the anxiety at home. Limited play therapy can be done in session with parent present to teach then how to address their child's issues. At young ages, parents are a critical resource for addressing the anxiety as it occurs rather than expecting the child to integrate the strategies practiced in session. Bibliotherapy (books), games, art and role playing are all types of therapeutic tools taught to parents,

Creating a safe environment for children is key in getting to the root of a challenge they are facing. Often children do not have the skills to cope or express themselves when facing a stressful life situation. I use play therapy as a method of helping children facilitate problem solving and conflict resolution. I also utilize behavioral therapy when working with children. Incorporating them into developmental and situationally appropriate groups is also an effective method for children to build skills and resiliency to work through their challenges.
