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.

Are your children/teens displaying behaviors that may be of concern to you? Have you been "stuck" with a situation that you are struggling to overcome? Is your child struggling with anxiety, depression, school problems, or emotional issues due to the loss of a loved one, cyber-bullying, trauma or divorce? I have worked in Education K-12, for 15 years helping parents and their children overcome many difficulties in life and improve academic success.

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.

Great Lakes Psychology Group

In 48098 - Nearby to Ortonville.

Great Lakes Psychology Group offers counseling to children and their parents for a wide variety of emotional, behavioral, and academic problems. And while children can and do benefit from counseling, they are not equipped in the same way as adults to talk, reflect, and problem-solve as they often lack the insight, awareness, and vocabularies necessary to take full advantage of psychotherapy. Therapists have at their disposal a host of methods developed to meet the unique counseling needs of children, perhaps foremost among them being play therapy. Play therapy is used because it reaches all kinds of children despite their differences.

My approach to counseling with children is to work collaboratively with the parents. counseling with children is part of a family systems approach. Children do not develop struggles in a vacuum so working with the parents and the rest of the family as needed is of added benefit to the child in therapy, regardless of the age of the minor child involved. Therapy may be weekly or every other week, as needed and determined when we develop the treatment plan.

Licensed Psychologist

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 Professional Counselor

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 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.

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.

Are you not sure why your child is not learning? Are they unmotivated or seem to be not performing to the best of their potential? Your child may have an undiagnosed learning disorder. Neuropsychological testing is the best avenue to discover why your child may not be performing well in school. The sooner parents can find out what is interfering with their child's learning, the sooner the child can have opportunities to improve academic performance.

Do you have young children you are worried about? Are you seeing mood, personality, and behavior, changes in your child? Are you going through a divorce or in early recovery from a divorce? Is your child struggling socially? Academically? Young children often lack the insight, or capacity, to understand their stressful circumstances, and so it is common to be able to observe their stress, such as acting out, or acting in (withdrawing into the self, as with depression and social anxiety). Therapy can help you to understand where your child is at developmentally, what the major tasks are at that age, and how and why your child may be struggling right now, and how you can help, now. Don't wait.
