A parent is only as happy as their saddest child. It is extremely painful to watch our children suffer and be at a loss of what is going on or how to help them. I am a certified Play Therapist and work with children ages 2 and up. When a child is acting out that is a sign that something is wrong in their world. Play Therapy is the preferred form of therapy for children under the age of ten and it is highly effective for children suffering from abuse, neglect, bullying, low self esteem, divorce etc. Play was a child's first language and we use play in session to gain insight into what is going on in a child's world when they don't have the ability to put words to it themselves.

It can be very difficult as a parent to address all of your child's needs and issues. As a play therapist I have specialized training in utilizing an effective approach to help your child achieve healing and the family to restore relationships. Children often can suffer from the same issues that we can have as adults but express it in different ways. This is often misunderstood and requires a unique approach with parents to help find the ways to manage behaviors and explore problems within a child's life. My experience includes counseling children with an abuse or trauma history, ADHD, and Autism.

I have over 10 years of experience working with children, families and parenting. I take the time to understand where the child is at developmentally as well as take into consideration the struggles the parents are having with the child. I work with the children through play, talk, games, and I'm not afraid to turn the room into an obstacle course! I focus on developmental stages, emotion awareness/management, and behavior. Along side, I find it helpful to talk with parents about their concerns, and I strive to offer parenting advice and effective family interactions.

Oftentimes, parents find themselves in counseling for their young children because of behavioral difficulties. Children who have problems managing and regulating their behavior can be tough for a frustrated and exhausted parent to deal with. Their behavior can begin to disrupt family functioning and put a strain on family relationships. Working to address these behavioral difficulties in young children begins with providing education and support for the parents. Parent support includes providing skills to help reshape behavior and learn how to readjust family interactions in a more positive way.
