As a Licensed Family Therapist, I realize that children face a variety of issues in their young lives which affect them. Divorce, loss, stress at home, fear, etc. often cause children to act our or misbehave. When children are in pain, they do the only thing they know how to do; lash out, act out, or get sad and depressed. Children don't have the capacity to understand their feelings and don't have the language to describe how they are feeling. In therapy with children, through art and play therapy, I help them and their parent/s to express feelings in a creative and safe way. Many times, working alone with the parents, I help them develop strategies for helping their child.

Our approach to helping and counseling young children is focused on establishing positive rapport and trust. We accomplish this through validation of a child's feelings and emotions. We also believe in creating a very warm and caring environment, and work through the use of art and music to make a child feel comfortable. Counseling children requires time and patience, as each child is unique. Most importantly, we work closely with parents, as change is families occurs in a system, requiring all family members to work together on change.
