Significant life events — such as the death of a family member, friend, or pet; divorce or a move; trauma; a parent leaving on military deployment; or a major illness in the family — can cause stress that might lead to problems with behavior, mood, sleep, appetite, and academic or social functioning. In some cases, it's not as clear what's caused a child to suddenly seem withdrawn, worried, stress, sulky, or tearful. But if you feel your child might have an emotional or behavioral problem or needs help coping with a difficult life event, it is worth checking. I have worked with children for 14 years and provide an environment in which parents and child feel at ease in exploring issues.

I work with children from the age of 3 to 17. While adolescents are able to engage appropriately in more traditional "talk therapy," younger children do not have the skills to verbally share their feelings or experiences. Instead, they will often work through their issues in more symbolic ways, such as through play. Different types of play are used, such as sandtray play, dolls or puppets, books, art, storytelling, and therapeutic board games. While the child plays, I ask questions and probe for more information, in an attempt to assist the child to share feelings, resolve difficulties, gain a sense of mastery, and problem solve in a healthy manner.

Loving, good-enough parents are the natural vehicles through which children learn to engage the world. When children are said to "need help," it is generally the case that their adult caregivers need help, too. Psychotherapists who work with children do well to engage parent figures in the process. The impact of therapy upon children is strongly influenced by the parent-child system. That said, children commonly encounter personal issues which their parents are unprepared to help with or manage. Childhood depression is among the most under-diagnosed medical conditions. Children who learn to effectively engage in therapy enjoy lifelong benefits from this important experience.
