Child Therapy

Relationship Reading

When children "act out" or have difficult behavior, they are communicating to us. Most of the time the behavior is the result of the child struggling and not having the tools or skills to overcome or deal with theirs difficulties. While understandably most caregivers and/or schools tend to focus on the difficult behavior and try to modify or eliminate them, the root cause is often not addressed. If you have tried to manage your child's behavior, "angry outbursts", and tantrums, and either it has not been working or only temporarily working, it might be time to take a different approach and try to find the root cause of those issues.  I have worked with children with a variety of diagnosis and of different ages, and I have found play therapy to be the most effective of any treatment for younger children. Even the most "unengaged" kids are able to work through many types of issues through play. I look forward to helping your child and your family find the best strategies to work through your difficulties.

Here are some of the frequent reasons parents have sought therapy for their children:

  • Excessive anxiety and worry

  • Exessive angry outbursts or tantrums

  • Excessive shyness, social withdrawn and isolation

  • emotional oversensitivity, tearfulness, or sadness

  • struggles with daily functions and routines, homework, etc

  • sleep or eating issues

  • separation anxiety

  • learning differences

  • sexual, physical, or emotional abuse

  • Death of a family member or pet, dealing with grief

  • going through divorce, or changes in the family structure

  • sibiling rivalry 

  • perfectionism, or being very hard on self

I have experience working with neurodiverse "Atypical"  kids, such as those on the autism spectrum, those with ADD/ADHD diagnosis, and sensory processing issues, as well as gifted and twice exceptional kids.
