When treating Children and Adolescence who have suffered from serious acute, complex or chronic trauma, I use the evidence based model of Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy being very sensitive to developmental factors that impact how a person may be presenting. Goals of treatment is to assist children and youth to recovery from the effects of early trauma and loss. For children who are adopted or in foster care, treatment is designed to help children adjust to major loses in their lives and make a successful adjustment to the new family dynamics.

Young children change so quickly. You think you have it figured out and something new appears. Whether you have a small question or a major concern, checking in with a therapist is a great idea. My work with young children usually involves working with the parents, too. For children under 5, as your child’s first teacher, you can be the best change agent for him/her. For older children, play therapy and talking therapy, plus periodic consultations with parents and teachers, if necessary, can help to make life at home calmer and happier as your child develops in positive ways.

My approach to working with young children is essentially non-directive play therapy, allowing the child to have freedom of expression, learning to use language to express feelings, and resolving concerns such as separation anxiety, sleepwalking and bad dreams, and other behavioral changes. There are times when it may be indicated to work in family systems model, or to address a problem that may be affecting the whole family system. I do not handle custody cases, and my work is intended to help heal the family system when necessary.

I love working with young children and their parents, as behaviors are not yet ingrained, and parents can learn new skills to help manage their child's symptoms. It also helps to learn what is expected developmentally so that parents don't get overly anxious about children meeting expectations. Today's world can be stressful for young children as well, and children also feel the stress that their parents' experience. We can explore coping skills and self-care for parents and children alike. We can also work through communications skills and help children become more emotionally skilled to manage symptoms.
