All people are spiritual. Spirituality is different for all of us, but it is the common or central starting point for all of us when we face the tougher side of life. It is no different for children. Children are also very spiritual. Through their interesting viewpoints and their endless questions spark us to struggle, search and even connect. Children are profoundly spiritual and we need to listen to them. In their own way children often grasp things much faster and precisely than adults do and can give us much comfort and care. In working with children my approach is to explore their understanding of grief and spirituality. The spiritual markers on grief’s journeys, “typical” expression....

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.

Counselor

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.

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.

Licensed Psychologist

In 48126 - Nearby to Southgate.

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.

Therapist

Our time together is an opportunity to explore strengths, weaknesses, challenges, and desires. Together, we will work to process aspects of your life that may be causing discomfort, frustration, anxiety, depression, or even simply an overall feeling of being overwhelmed. 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 hope for you is that you find security and optimism knowing that we each have the power from within to make each day a better day.

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.

Divorce and Family Mediator, Parenting Coordinator, & SW

In 48334 - Nearby to Southgate.

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.

Licensened Psychotherapist

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.
