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.

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.

Your intuitive child has likely been different since birth. S/he seems to respond to things and to life differently than most other kids. Highly perceptive, very emotional, and sometimes too aware and knowing for his/her age. Your little may bring up topics or reference things that are confusing, perhaps a bit scary, and you may not even know what to say in those moments. S/he likely gets overwhelmed a lot and may seem to know things that is impossible to explain. I wager you struggle between wanting to support and encourage your child and your desire to protect him/her. I understand and I can teach you how to support your child.

I find that I am most successful in working with children when I am able to gain trust and rapport with their parents. My personal belief is that there is no one more expert about a child than his mother or father. I also believe that the mother or father is typically the person with the greatest therapeutic capability with that child. I see my role as working with the child in collaboration with the parent. I know that to work with the child I have to work gently and patiently to gain their trust. I find that play is the language of a child so that I like to use stuffed animals, whiteboard illustrations,& lots of humor. I teach parents how to be effective in working with their own child.

Parenting is the most guilt inducing task I see in my therapy practice. It's heavy when relationships with our little ones is broken. If you need help parenting children in a way that works for you and for them, I will coach you in improving your parenting techniques. My study in the area of Interpersonal Neurobiology can help you discover why you each seem to blow your top so easily with each other and find ways to soothe your own nervous system and your child's so that blowouts diminish. You can set your child up for a positive relationship future and that starts with repairing their bond with you. You can recover from your mistakes.

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 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.

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.
