I counsel young children who have been through abuse with EMDR therapy. EMDR therapy has shown to work well with children who have experienced trauma. If your child has been emotionally, sexually, verbally or physically abused give them the chance to work through these issue before it is too late. Please make an appointment for your child to have EMDR therapy.

It is so important to do our best to resolve issues when children are young rather than in their teens or adulthood. So many issues that we see in adults stem from unresolved issues from when they were children. Early intervention and prevention are important. It is easier to resolve issues before they have years to grow and become entrenched. Therapy is tailored to the child with play therapy being one very valuable approach.

Children have worries, fears, intense emotions, and issues with change and past trauma, just like adults. And like adults, they sometimes need help in processing these experiences. Children do not have the same ability as adults to be able to identify, understand, and talk about their feelings. That is where play therapy comes in. In play therapy, children use play to express and process their troubles. Our therapists work closely with the parents to help their children deal with their feelings and the behavior issues that are often attached. We have several play therapists that can work with you and your children.

I enjoy working with young children as it allows me to fully embrace my creative and energetic side! I connect well with them, and help them understand themselves and life experiences through art and experiential therapies (including play and equine assisted pyschotherapy). I often times include the larger families in the process in a way that educates parents and strengthens the parent-child bond. I offer home-based therapy, or the more traditional office setting.
