Most of my work with younger children happens within the context of family therapy. When I work with children individually, I use modalities that are primarily experiential in nature such as art and play therapy through which I more able to gauge specific developmental deficits and needs. In all the years I have been working with people, the most profound and lasting wounds resulted from attachment issues experienced as children who often merely want adults to be with them in a safe, affirming way.
