Young children, just like individuals of any age, need opportunities to express emotion, gain self-awareness and self-acceptance, and develop skills related to self-expression, self-assertion, and self-control. These tasks are best accomplished within the context of a supportive and nurturing relationship. What is unique about young children is that their major vehicle for exploring and achieving these developmental tasks is play. As a psychologist working with young children, I utilize play to teach skills, work through conflicts or trauma, explore emotion, and build resiliency in my young clients.

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.

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.

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.
