Children and Adolescents
I offer a whole child approach, supporting children and adolescents with depression, anxiety, school related challenges, family adjustment, behavioral concerns and trauma.
Parents may be concerned their child is not functioning well, is having difficulty with regulating their emotions or behaviors, or is experiencing challenging life circumstances. Children typically need a specialized style of therapy, as they don't "talk" their way through problems and conflicts, but rather "play" their own processes out in therapy. Through play and other modalities, children are able to begin to self-identify areas in their lives that need support or adjustment, so they can recover and thrive. Utilizing a variety of child friendly techniques, such as play therapy, art, and sand tray therapy, social skills training, the family and child are supported through the process.
I also support parents in utilizing effective parenting methods and techniques to help the family obtain greater functioning and increased levels of peace at home.
