Children require a particular speciality to work with in that they can tell if an adult is talking down to them or not. I find by communicating with a child on their level, about their worries and fears, no matter their age, I will be able to connect with them over what they feel they need to work on. Along with their parent's guidance and input, I have been able to successfully modify problem behaviors within the family home and at school. I also have extensive experience in trauma work, with children going through a family transition, or recovering from abuse.

I do not specialize in the treatment of young children, but I have two colleagues who do. Every day I watch them engage with children and parents in our waiting room or as they take them back to their offices. Every day I witness the transformation of mood and behavior that makes me grateful to have these amazing colleagues. Children's faces light up at the sight of their therapist coming around the corner. Parents go from feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, and despondent over their child's pain to feeling confident, happy, and relaxed. The ability to connect with a child on a level that can lift the pain from their eyes and the furrow from their brow is a true gift.
