A basic tenet that I bring into the counseling room is that there is no such thing as a bad kid, but rather a kid who is behaving badly due to maladaptive circumstances beyond his or her control. A child's misguided attempt to attract attention through misbehavior is frequently punished rather than recognized as a cry for help. I will work together with you and your child to identify the underlying causes of your child's acting out behaviors, and help you develop parenting and communication skills that will allow you and your child to communicate and discuss fears, concerns and needs more safely and effectively.

Nothing is more frustrating for a parent that seeing their child or adolescent struggle. Seeing your child or teen struggle with depression, anxiety, school performance, and other behavioral issues is incredibly frustrating. I have worked with many youth and their families to overcome struggles. I work with the youth individually to identify struggles they encounter. Assisting youth through tough times is rewarding.

Sometimes kids, like adults, can benefit from therapy. Therapy can help kids develop problem-solving skills and also teach them the value of seeking help. Therapists can help kids and families cope with stress and a variety of emotional and behavioral issues. Many kids need help dealing with school stress, such as homework, test anxiety, bullying, or peer pressure. Others need help to discuss their feelings about family issues, particularly if there's a major transition, such as a divorce, move, or serious illness. Significant life events — such as the death of a family member, friend, or pet; — can cause stress that might lead to problems with behavior, mood, sleep, and appetite.

If your child is needing assistance to move through a difficult time, there is help available. When working with children, play therapy has been shown to be highly effective. During play therapy, “toys are like the child's words and play is the child's language.” (Landreth, 2002) This is important with children who may not have the ability to effectively express their thoughts and feelings verbally. Through play, therapists help children learn social skills, more adaptive behaviors, and find healing through a relationship based on unconditional positive regard.

As a former Early Childhood educator I believe in equipping parents with tools that help them communicate with their children. Together we can work to increase trust and effectively deal with conflict and parent-child interaction. Children can be instructed how to deal with their emotions if they are coached to do so. I often use sand/play to equip a child to express their emotions.

I have completed play therapy coursework and I utilize non-directive play therapy techniques with children. This approach allows the child to have control in the therapy room which helps the child develop control outside of the room. If the child needs another approach I adapt to that child. EMDR can be helpful in helping some children resolve traumatic events in their lives.

Most people are curious about how therapy works with children. It’s very different! We use methods that are designed to make it easy for children to express and heal the challenges they face. With children, play opens a door that talking alone cannot. Play helps children integrate feeling, action and thought. Most children have difficulty observing their thoughts and feelings. So we play with a purpose to help your child naturally express and work through difficulties. We use play therapy, art work, and work with parents. We would love to discuss your concerns about your child, why lose any more precious time? Most people who call are good parents and have good kids. Call or text today.
