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.

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.

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.
