Many problems with children may be a direct extension of the problems going on in the home, and the children are the "lightening rods" to those issues. However, children may also have their own traumas. We work with children to identify their traumas, losses, grief or behavior disorders. With children we have to move slowly and utilize play to identify themes and create healing within their play. We always work within the family system to build rapport with the child, create healing and teach parents how to enable healing and create a supportive family dynamic when children have been traumatized and need loving and supportive family and extended family around them.
