Children hold a special place in my heart. Having raised four, I know this from experience – When our kids hurt, we hurt. Aware that I am caring for your heart and soul, I attend to both you and your child with special care. Experienced with children ages 7-18 years, I utilize play, EMDR and equine-assisted pychotherapy for issues such as anxiety, trauma and abuse, depression, ADHD, impulse control, anger, aggression, bullying, academic under/over-achievement, adoption, as well as life transitions including loss of loved one, separation, divorce and blending families. Partnering with horses is a powerful,way to help children and teens heal.

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.

Teens and children have unique needs in therapy. They want to be heard and validated. One very important aspect of therapy with children is to facilitate a trusting therapeutic relationship with the child to nurture safety. Only then will the child be able to open up and express difficult emotions and experiences. With children, I specialize in assessing for ADHD, working through traumatic experiences, anxiety/panic or OCD, adoption challanges, family changes and other behavioral issues.

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.

At IPC we have several therapists that specialize in working with children. We also have a child psychiatrist if medication consultations are needed. Working with children requires specialized training and skills that our clinicians possess. Through a variety of play therapy techniques we can help work on the issues your child has a hard time explaining and talking about. We will work with parents collaboratively to deal with anxiety, depression, behavioral problems, and parenting techniques.

I have considerable experience working with young children. I believe that a combination of individual and family therapy is an approach that works. We will work together to overcome the issues you and your family are going through. Understanding you’re not alone and getting support to help problem solve and learn communication skills is a step forward. We will take the time to move out of the chaos into a more authoritative environment. Authoritative is a blending of a caring tone with structure and consistent limit setting. Together we can make it work!
