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!!!

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.

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.

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.

Great Lakes Psychology Group

In 48098 - Nearby to Village of Grosse Pointe Shores.

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.

Licensed Psychologist

In 48084 - Nearby to Village of Grosse Pointe Shores.

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.

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....

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.
