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.

Children are amazing and are far more intelligent, emotional and in tune to their surroundings than we often give credit for! For example, children use play to express and reflect their internal thoughts and emotions - Play IS work for the growing child, and observation of play is one of the most effective ways to gain insight to a child's inner emotions. We accomplish this communication and connetion with your child through Play therapy. Play therapy is useful in addressing: * Social Challenges * Adjustment to separation from parents. * Unresolved or suspected trauma & abuse * Anxiety * Anger * Aggression * Sudden life changes * Behavioral issues. * Potty We treat children ages 1 &up

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.

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.

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.

I am incredibly passionate about working with children as young as 3 years old, up to adolescence and the teenage years. I work with children, and collaborate with their loved ones, regarding various difficulties. I help children with the following concerns: depression, anxiety, school-stress, familial-stress, survivors of trauma, survivors of sexual assault, PTSD, grief and loss, and life-transitions/adjustments. With very young children, I utilize child-centered play therapy, especially with children going through trauma, divorcing parents, and other incredibly sensitive situations. I also strive to incorporate art therapy as well; using effective interventions for each unique child.

Families play an important role in children’s healing processes. The interaction between children’s problems and their families is always complex. Sometimes children develop problems as a way of signaling that there is something wrong in the family. Other times the entire family becomes distressed because the child’s problems are so disruptive. In all cases, children and families heal faster when they work together. The play therapist will make some decisions about how and when to involve some or all members of the family in the play therapy. At a minimum, the therapist will want to communicate regularly with the child’s caretakers to develop a plan for resolving problems as they are identified and to monitor the progress of the treatment.
