Children express themselves and learn through the language of play. In order to connect with a child, we must be able to speak a language that they understand. I have learned, over years of therapy practice and supervision, to tune in to what a child is expressing through their play. I provide play therapy that can help your child process events and learn important skills.
Therapy may be appropriate for your child if they experience:
- low self esteem
- changes in appetite
- difficulties reaching their full academic potential
- worry or sadness that seem excessive or concerning
- nightmares or disturbed sleep
- behavioral trouble in school, community or home
- difficulties connecting with peers or others
- excessive anger or outbursts
- divorce or separation, family difficulties
- loss of a loved one, grief
- abuse (physical, sexual, emotional)
- difficulties in the process of being adopted or fostered
- difficulties adjusting to living in a blended family
- being bullied or bullying others
Family involvement is essential to successful therapy for children. We will formulate a plan for family involvement in the initial sessions of therapy.
Additionally I offer preschool support in a variety of different ways.
