CHILDREN & FAMILY COUNSELING

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.
