Ashburn Psychological Services has child psychologists available to assess and treat children from 2 years of age through childhood. Our child psychologists have training in play therapy, behavioral therapy and parenting work. Typically, psychologists who work with younger children work with both the child and the parents when addressing a developmental, social/emotional or behavioral concerns. At times meetings with the parents and not the child is the preferred method. Developmental testing and neuropsychological testing is also available at Ashburn Psychological Services.

Raising children is a difficult job. They need to feel loved and secure, and parents need to learn to be fair, firm, friendly, and consistent. I help parents and their children learn to talk and behave in a way that everyone's needs are met, through positive parenting and communication, rewards, consequences, and setting healthy limitations and expectations, young children will have a healthy self esteem and parents will feel proud of themselves and their children. I use resources a lot from the book, How to Talk so Kids will Listen and Listen so Kids will talk. Humor, praise, and therapeutic games are beneficial too!

Working with young children is a unique skill. As young children are less able to verbalize their stressors than are older children and adults, I utilize non-verbal tools to help them both express their needs and help them to work on solutions. I use sand tray therapy in my office which gives children ownership over their "world" by using figurines and toys to play out their personal situations. I also use art therapy with young children; both free form and structured activities during the session. Playing games with a young child gives me a way to learn how they adapt to rules and limits as well as giving the child a way to experience some fun while in the midst of productive therapy

Are you wondering if your child could benefit from child therapy? Our therapists provide services to children of all ages. Who is Child Therapy For? As parents, we can usually tell when our normal efforts to help our child aren't working. There are times when we could benefit from more ideas for parenting. We want to give our child a chance to improve his or her own natural capacity to adjust and cope with challenges. Child therapy can help a child express normal emotions and is done often in conjunction with meetings with the parent(s). See our website about typical issues addressed with child therapy. Our child therapy services uses play therapy for children under a certain age.

As a specialist in bereavement counseling, I am able to attend to the particular issues of childhood bereavement. I consider that it is important to create a safe space for bereaved children in conjunction and separate from their bereaved parents, since children usually respond to less verbal therapies. I employ art, music, and story telling exercises to help children process their grief.

Many times, child therapists overdo the family system in their quest to seek effective solutions for emotional, learning or behavioral concerns with young children. And many times doctors overpathologize issues that shouldn’t be medicated necessarily. This leaves parents wondering what is the best route for their child?
