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.

It can be hard to be communicate with our children without our own emotions getting in the way. Sometimes our children just need to hear from someone else. Therapy can bridge this gap and provide an opportunity for parents and children to hear each other. I enjoy working with children and it is obvious to them when we meet. I let them set the pace and work to build trust so that you can work on your relationship with them and see improvement. Oftentimes, kids who are hesitant to speak to someone face-to-face will be ore willing to talk to a therapist online.
