I work with children as young as age four. In addition to family therapy, play therapy is the method I use to engage younger children on an individual basis. Younger children may have difficulty expressing their thoughts and feelings in words, but can express them through drawing, painting, storytelling, games, as well as symbolic play with puppets, dolls, etc. Play therapy activities depend on the child's developmental age and the therapy goals. Although I nearly always use play therapy techniques with younger children, play therapy may also be appropriate with many older children.

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.
