I have seen at least 1000 children and adolescents. Each one is different! Many have had learning disabilities, and many have had Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Some have had Trichtoillomania (compulsive hair pulling), or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) or Tourettes. With these a behavior therapy approach has been most useful. For younger children, I use play therapy as well as parent consultations. Parents need to be involved but they also usually need to allow the child to talk freely. for play therapy, I use puppets and/or drawing activities at the little table and chairs in my office. I might need to assess the child formally to determine any learning problems.

My primary goal of working with children and adolescents is to focus on strengths and build upon those strengths. Instead of focusing on problems, which can be exhausting and emotionally draining, I like to build on the strengths of individuals in order to empower and encourage them to make positive changes in their lives. The more they are able to recognize their own past solutions the easier it is for them to repeat those solutions in order to achieve their goals, as opposed to having another adult tell them what to do.

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.

Do you have young children and find yourself having a hard time managing your emotions and setting boundaries consistent with your own values and upbringing? This is the challenge of many parents. We are often given well-intentioned parenting techniques that are difficult to implement. This is not because we are not intelligent, but because it is likely that you have not worked through your own emotional issues to be most effective for your child. Through therapy, we can help you face unresolved issues so that you can be a more calm and effective parent.

Young children who are dealing with emotional distress, often expressed in behavior, will look to primary caregivers (parents, adoptive parents/guardians) for emotional support and nurturance. The young person’s emotional/behavioral symptoms could be co-occurring with or caused by differences in parenting styles, adjustment to divorce, co-parenting arrangements, death/loss/ grief adjustments, and other stressors in the home, school, or environment. While I do not provide individual therapy for young children, I offer my skills, training and experience in family therapy to help parents/caregivers foster an effective, calm, at-ease rapport with their children, sometimes including family therapy with children present.

We use sandbox and play therapy to provide the young with alternatives in creative expression, and to let them know that there is a safe holding place where their fears can be confronted, and respected. Often, we also help the children best by helping the parents find peaceful ways to reach common ground on child-rearing practices and responses. The most crucial element is to treat a child, not a diagnosis or condition.

Many times, child therapists overdo the family system in their quest to seek effective solutions for emotional, learning or behavioral concerns with young children.
