Parents seek treatment for children for a variety of reasons. Some of those may be behavioral/emotional issues, changes within the family, and adjustment issues to name a few. I utilize a variety of techniques to connect with children and assist them in exploring their feelings becoming more responsible for behaviors, developing new solutions to problems, respect and acceptance of self and others.

I spent many years as a preschool teacher and I place great emphasis on the learnings that take place during the first 7 years of life. Parents and other parental figures have tremendous power to create a network of safe, challenging but supportive environments. When children are showing signs of emotional strain, I prefer to work with the adults to locate and address the sources of problems.

Children often times need to express their feelings through a concrete methodology, so that they can release what is going on inside of them. Through play therapy, a child can address the many emotions and help identify them, so that the release of negative emotions do not cause them undo stress. Parents are wise to address the issues early on, so that the child can function as their true self. My guidance, through the process of child therapy, can help parents become skilled in communicating with their young child, so that attachment to parents has a solid foundation.

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.

Children are very special people! I have worked for 23 years helping children to live a more satisfying life. Outside my office I've raised two into teen and adulthood. I've taught kids at my church for years, and I also am a Licensed School Counselor. Just 3 weeks ago I took on a 11-12 year old and we've already pushed through the most difficult part of treatment! Kids like the relaxed environment and the fact that I spell things out for them so they understand what we are trying to accomplish. I'd love to help your children work through the issues that keep them from achieving their goals. Give me a call and we'll start in a couple days!!!

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.

Licensed Psychologist

Children often express their experiences and feelings through play, and this becomes an important tool for learning about themselves and others. Children often express and resolve inner conflicts through their play. The therapist helps the child to express and understand the world through play activities - sometimes acting out conflicts and feelings, then interpreting (as appropriate to age) how a similar issue or feeling is present in the child's life.
