Working with young children takes trust and creativity. It is important to involve as much of the system as possible to create lasting change for those children. Developing a good therapeutic relationship with a child is essential for reaching the goals. Those goals are set through discussion with the family members. Children who are not particularly verbal, or comfortable talking openly, may need to use art or play in the therapy room to help express emotions.

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

Children are influenced, guided and encouraged through their developmental life span and can be hindered in a various experience. Whether parental, relational, mental, emotional, behavioral, spiritual or somatic, children need protection, provision and direction to be as free and unencumbered to just be a child (that's their only job description!). Explaining complex solutions in simple terms throughout the lifespan can be a real challenge. Finding the right fit for each child is the goal.
