CHILDREN & FAMILY COUNSELING
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
