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.

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.

I work with children 11 years and older. I think at this age fears and family systems are explored. It will take the family to be open and the child to be willing to explore emotions and feel safe. With play and art I find that kids can feel safe and not feel judged by emotional responses. I work with schools if I have to on behavioral plans. It is a collection of advice and behavioral standards for proper care.

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.

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.

Sometimes the child themselves will ask to see a therapist and the parent is contacting us on behalf of their request. Occasionally, parents are expecting an increase in stress in the child’s environment such as an upcoming family illness, death, blending of a family, or divorce and the parents want to prepare the child to cope appropriately. Additionally, at times other service providers have made a recommendation to the parents, such as teachers, physicians, coaches, or other family members to seek out treatment for their child. Whatever the reason, we understand that this can be a difficult and anxiety provoking process for the family and child.
