Licensed Mental Health Counselor - LMHC
Child therapy is great!….And it doesn’t have to be a scary process! I imagine you have come to considering therapy for your child after days, weeks, or months of worrying. I am glad you have taken the step to look for a therapist to work with your child and family. We all can use some help at different points in our life, and that includes during childhood. But children need specialized support that works from their level and with their language. Child therapists have special training, skills, and experience bringing to life the healing benefits of therapy through the medium of play, art, song, story, and movement. I want to remove any mystery or fear about child therapy and provide a transparent experience for you and your child.I LOVE working with kids! Children are full of life and have a unique viewpoint of the world. And they experience the world so differently than adults. Children often struggle to express their experience of the world using words, and I like to help them communicate through their play, art, and movement. I utilize these same forms to teach children the skills they need to handle extraordinary circumstances they face within themselves or within their world, and to process how it has impacted them.
I also use these communication forms to teach families how to communicate better, understand each other, interact better, and create a more peaceful home and family life.
