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!

Children are precious. When something is off with one of your children, your heart aches. We can help your child express what is happening in his/her mind, heart, or body through the use of experiential play therapy, and help you as his/her parent to support your child's needs in a way that fits for your family. Kelle is engaging, warm, and very accessible to young children, ages birth through 12.

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.

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.

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

Parenting is such hard work. Seeking help from a therapist is like having a coach in your corner. I will provide you with resources, books, and ideas on how to build your skills and have peace at home. I have taught parenting classes and often work with parents that are struggling with their children's behaviors. I also especially enjoy working with single moms or parents who have a child on the autism spectrum.

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.
