Sometimes the child themselves will ask to see a therapist and the parent is contacting us on behalf of their request. Occasionally, parents are expecting an increase in stress in the child’s environment such as an upcoming family illness, death, blending of a family, or divorce and the parents want to prepare the child to cope appropriately. Additionally, at times other service providers have made a recommendation to the parents, such as teachers, physicians, coaches, or other family members to seek out treatment for their child. Whatever the reason, we understand that this can be a difficult and anxiety provoking process for the family and child.

Children need a solid, constant source of care. Therapy can help the child express their emotions and deal with any disorder(s) they may have. It also brings the issues to the attention of the parents so they can better deal with the situation and make more time for their child. If you are not able to help, a therapist can be very effective at finding out what is troubling your child and help them deal with their emotions.

I work with children 11 years and older. I think at this age fears and family systems are explored. It will take the family to be open and the child to be willing to explore emotions and feel safe. With play and art I find that kids can feel safe and not feel judged by emotional responses. I work with schools if I have to on behavioral plans. It is a collection of advice and behavioral standards for proper care.
