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.

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 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

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.

Child Therapist

Kalli Matsuhashi, MA, LP, LMFT, LPCC

Licensed Psychologist & Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Lexington

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!
