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 work with Anxious Children ages 10 and up. I find often children deny or try to hide their anxiety because it is beyond their ability to express it verbally. They have no words or experiences to be able to reference to say it. Their anxiety can be debilitating, especially if no one acknowledges it and openly talks about it. Children can have the same major feelings associated with anxiety that adults have such as: Constant and unreasonable fear, Feelings of loneliness, Sadness, Feeling of lack of power or helplessness, or Associated psychosomatic pains, such as: headache or digestive problems.
