Working Together

Young children often do not have the vocabulary to express their thoughts and feelings like adults do and oftentimes express themselves by acting out or shutting down. I found that play therapy, CBT, sand tray and art, work well with children. When the parents are on-board, you can see significant improvements in a child’s behavior and academic achievement in a short period of time.

Sometimes children and parents need a little extra support to go through life events like separation or divorce, death in the family, moving to a new place or any other life event which increases anxiety or causes imbalance. I have worked extensively with children and parents affected by complex trauma in their life. I provide a safe and caring environment for children and parents to heal and grow.  Some of my specialties include but not limited to - 

  • Anxiety - social anxiety, generalized anxiety, constant worrying 

  • Depression - self- harm, suicidal thoughts, isolation, crying

  • Defiance- at home or school, non-compliance, tantrums

  • Blended, foster or adopted families.

  • Abuse- Physical, emotional, sexual

Give me a call for a 20 minute free consultation. 

We can work together to help your child alleviate the symptoms, feel happy and productive. As a parent, your anxiety, fear, and feeling of hopelessness will reduce. You can enjoy quality time with family again. A small change goes a long way.
