Sharon Moehle, Ed.S.

Licensed Psychologist

Sharon loves to help young children. She enjoys them and she believes it's very important to address your child's issues as soon as possible. She is happy to offer a variety of services, (counseling, play therapy, EMDR, EEG biofeedback, Quantum biofeedback, and more) as she finds that children aren't always able to reach counseling goals with talk therapy alone. It can be difficult for therm to identify and verbalize what is troubling them. This is why children often "act out" their emotions. Sharon believes she is successful with more children since she started simultaneously combining therapies and started utilizing EMDR and biofeedback. EMDR and biofeedback can be powerful for kids!

Play Therapy is a structured child therapy method that builds on the knowledge and usual communicative manner of children. Play therapy is applied for various emotional, behavioral, and social disorders with play therapy being used as a first intervention. Because children struggle with communicating their views and emotions--play therapy is a great method. With play therapy, Amy aids in supporting the child to learn more adaptive ways when there are cultural and emotional deficits. Amy believes the actual relationship created through child therapy can render a corrective emotional occurrence needed for healing.

I work with children over the age of 5, typically elementary school and above. General concerns that initiate services include experiencing bullying, family conflict (divorce, separation), addicition issues in the family, grief and loss, depression, and occasionally acting out behaviors. I do have some "kid friendly" resources to generate discussion at their level and keep a basket of toys to ease their comfort level. Many times a parent or grandparent sits in session until the child expresses comfort and trust at being in my office on their own with me.To ask questions or schedule an appointment, contact Angela McDowell.
