My first goal while working with children is to develop a supportive and trusting environment. I would let the child guide the direction of therapy, especially at the beginning, while trying to ask questions and explore topics that brought them to therapy. I will not push the child to discuss topics that are uncomfortable to the child because it may cause the child to lose trust and become defensive. I would, however, ask them to engage in play therapy or other types of play to help them to express themselves as it relates to sensitive topics.

Treating children and families is a collaborative effort between all parties. Counseling can help children to gain insight and make changes in maladaptive thoughts and behaviors. Parents can be educated on how to best help their child overcome trauma, psychosocial issues and other mental health concerns. Working as a team we can address common childhood issues like anxiety, depression, agitation, ADHD, trauma, low self-esteem and abandonment. Each family will have a specific plan developed to facilitate reaching their goals.

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.
