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 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.

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.

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.

I offer support to families and children, including those children who are struggling with identity issues, peer relationships, and family relationships. I offer limited play therapy services, and invite parent(s) to be engaged in a majority of sessions, if I believe it to be beneficial/therapeutic for the child. Additionally, I offer limited parent coaching.

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.

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.
