Clinical Focus

Child Therapy

Even very young children may present at times with issues which require support from a professional. Developmental crises may occur in early childhood regarding regulating emotions, sensory integration, separation, and school issues. Additionally children may suffer from more severe disorders such as attention deficit disorders, anxiety disorders, learning disabilities, communication disorders, trauma, or depression. Children often do not have the ability to communicate their inner conflicts with words. I use art therapy, play therapy, and sandtray therapy which are methods of engaging in a symbolic interaction which guides the child towards healing. I also spend a lot of time working with parents to help them gain tools to suppor their children so they can thrive.
