CHILDREN & FAMILY COUNSELING
Working with children and families is my specialty.
Young children often do not have the vocabulary to express their thoughts and feelings like adults do and oftentimes express themselves through play instead. 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 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. 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

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.
