Children express their worries and concerns differently than adults do. It takes a specialized approach and skill-set to communicate and work effectively with them. I am a Registered Play Therapist with more than 25 years of experience working with children and parents. Through play therapy I help children learn to express themselves and develop the skills they need to overcome a variety of challenges. I work closely with parents to give them the tools they need to support and guide their child in a positive direction.

Children many times do not even know how they feel about their circumstances and often have difficulty communicating it. Even if they did know many times they won't share it with a parent out of fear. Therapy helps a child overcome difficult emotions, learn how to regulate them in a healthy way, and provides valuable feedback for the parents. There are specific tools used that provide a child the ability to express their feeling accurately.

In my practice we do have a Play Therapy Room that I will often use when seeing young children. Therapy mixed with play helps the child to verbalize what they are experiencing on the inside. Emotions are not taught in schools. Play therapy is a great medium and tool that assist children in communicating what they might not have been able to with words.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker-Supervisor, Certified Anger Resolution Therapist, Substance Abuse Professional

In 75087 - Nearby to Wylie.

With a Specialization in Children and Families, I understand that children work through problems the best by using play therapy. Sitting on a big couch like an adult does not work well with a child. Instead, we sit on the floor and play age-appropriate cards or board games. With their hands busy, they can express their concerns in a way that reduces anxiety and enable the child to learn new ways of coping with the problem. I communicate with parents so they understand the child's perspective and how they can help at home or school.

Licensed Master Social Worker

In 75252 - Nearby to Wylie.

In counseling children, my approach includes incorporating games and activities that provide a dynamic and effective approach to addressing self-esteem issues, reducing anxiety, and alleviating depression. Interactive games not only serve as tools for emotional expression but also facilitate social engagement, promoting healthy peer interactions and communication skills. Through strategic play, children can learn to navigate and manage their emotions, fostering resilience and coping mechanisms. This approach not only makes therapy enjoyable but also facilitates the development of essential life skills in a supportive environment, contributing to the overall emotional well-being of the child.

GRIT Kids exists to allow parents or caregivers to aid their children in the work of self-awareness—at every developmental stage— to better understand themselves and the world around them. Simple behavioral management fails to develop the internal locus of control that is necessary for developing character and self-discipline. Forming a self-identity and learning to live with purpose is a necessary life skill for children to learn in order to live into their fullest self. GRIT Kids Coaches are trained to help you do the work of raising your child with intention so you can see that little person grow into all they are capable of.

Children and adolescents, or teens, build social skills and emotional intelligence as they grow. These things often lead to healthy, happy lives. But some kids have emotions or behave in ways that disrupt their well-being. Children go through changes in their moods and behaviors as they grow. Some of these changes are predictable. They can be challenging, but most are normal parts of child development. When a child's behavior matches their age, "growing pains" need not cause concern. Many theories address the phases of child development. Knowing these stages can help parents and caregivers understand child behavior and needs.
