I help young children by helping the family. Often times, a child's behavior is related to a problem within the family. If we help your family, usually the child will get better. Sometimes, especially in the case of foster care or adoption, there is a "wound" that needs addressing, primarily by helping the child receive a loving adult to hang on to. Academically speaking, we may refer you to a psychologist to rule out a learning disability. A family therapist is the best place to start.

I help children in the context of the family. By addressing the family as a whole and the patterns that exist within the family, the symptoms and behaviors in the child often dissipate. We will work together on relieving the family stress, how you can help your child become more successful and feel proud of him or herself. Every parent wants the best for their child and every parent wants to see their child happy and flourishing. Beginning family therapy is a great first step.

I enjoy working with Children 12 years and older. Pre-teens and teenagers are going through so much and are living in a world that they receive so many messages by the media! It is hard to make good decisions with the onslaught of messages they are bombarded with. Counseling can help a young child to feel safe enough to open up and begin to address 'scary things' in their lives. It would be an honor for me to work with your child.

Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Play Therapist

In 64152 - Nearby to Basehor.

A parent is only as happy as their saddest child. It is extremely painful to watch our children suffer and be at a loss of what is going on or how to help them. I am a certified Play Therapist and work with children ages 2 and up. When a child is acting out that is a sign that something is wrong in their world. Play Therapy is the preferred form of therapy for children under the age of ten and it is highly effective for children suffering from abuse, neglect, bullying, low self esteem, divorce etc. Play was a child's first language and we use play in session to gain insight into what is going on in a child's world when they don't have the ability to put words to it themselves.
