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.

Shasta Counseling Services llc specializes in Play Therapy for children. This approach uses play to help them work through the issues and struggles in their lives. Children are invited to play as they wish while Ashley works to create a safe and understanding environment to help guide them through the process. Play therapy focuses on a child’s need to express themselves through the use of play and toys. In play therapy children have access to a variety of things like art supplies, sand and miniatures, storytelling tools, and other toys for dramatic play through which they recreate the emotional experiences they are struggling with each day.

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.

Child Therapist

Stacy Henne, MS NCC QMHP

Youth, Individual, Couples and Family Therapist

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.

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.

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.
