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.
