With time and commitment, we can restore a sense of balance and personal confidence, even though it may feel like life is giving you the opposite.

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.

I counsel children as young as 6 years old. We play games, or drawing on the whiteboard to begin developing a therapeutic relationship. Everyone needs to be comfortable with their counselor before they can begin to open up. Children are no exception. When children do begin to open up, most are asking when they can come back. Developing a relationship takes a little longer with children than with adults, but it's well worth the slight delay.

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.

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.

In working with young children I use play therapy primarily. My treatment modalities include individual and group counseling in order to assist the children with practcing the skills learned in a social setting. My focus with younger children include self- control and appropriate expression of frustration. In addition, I focus on social skills and adjustment concerns. Lastly, I work closely with parents on positive behavior supports and assistance with behavioral interventions.
