Working with young children is a unique skill. As young children are less able to verbalize their stressors than are older children and adults, I utilize non-verbal tools to help them both express their needs and help them to work on solutions. I use sand tray therapy in my office which gives children ownership over their "world" by using figurines and toys to play out their personal situations. I also use art therapy with young children; both free form and structured activities during the session. Playing games with a young child gives me a way to learn how they adapt to rules and limits as well as giving the child a way to experience some fun while in the midst of productive therapy

When a child displays a problem behavior it indicates either an unmet need or an inadequate or inappropriate boundary in one of more relationship. Unlike play therapists, my focus is on increasing positive and cooperative interactions between the child and his/her parents and caregivers and teaching the child positive coping skills to deal with anger, sadness, and disappointment. Most change for children happens outside of the therapy room, so it is important for parents, caregivers, and teachers to be informed and/or involved in the therapy process.

Introducing brainwave optimization technology. A fast, effective, natural, and less expensive way to allow your child's brain to make the optimizing changes it desires to make---on its own!
