The key to working with children and adolescents is gaining an understanding of the child's history of attachment to adults, developmental level and cognitive abilities. With understanding in these areas, a therapist can most effectively work with children who may struggle to verbalize emotions/needs, engage in unhelpful behaviors and encounter adversity in life.

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.

Children process information very differently from adults and tend not to verbalize their concerns and struggles in a direct manner. Thus, when working with younger kids, I find it best to engage the children in play and/or art. During this process of creative play, kids are able to express themselves (often unknowingly and indirectly) to help aid healing and highlight present barriers to growth. Play is an excellent way for children to practice and build upon their skill set. Some examples of skills developed may include: improving overall communication skills, processing of trauma, stress management, emotional and social etiquette, and increasing cooperative and helpful behaviors

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.

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!

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.

Licensed Psychologist & Marriage and Family Therapist

I work with children from the age of 4 up through the teenage years, on a wide range of issues. The therapy might be talk therapy, talk therapy combined with hypnosis, or play therapy, depending on the situation. I encourage parents to participate in the sessions, although with older kids, I might ask mom or dad to wait in the reception area while I continue working one-on-one with their child. An aspect of my work with kids that both kids and their parents really appreciate is the practice of "externalizing" the problem - meaning, the problem is the problem, not the child. The kids I work with feel respected and heard, and this helps move them forward against the problem and happier!

Minnesota Counseling and Couples Center

In 55369 - Nearby to Eden Prairie.

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.
