Child Therapy

Is your child having difficulty expressing or handling their emotions or adjusting to a recent change or stressor? Are you having trouble communicating with your child or adolescent? Have you or your family been trying to find answers to your concerns and are looking for a supportive environment to share these concerns while developing a plan using many of the strengths you may already have?
In my work with children, I emphasize the importance of getting to know each child in a way that feels safe and comfortable for them. It is important that I am able to gain a clear understanding of your child’s view of the world to assist them in expressing their experiences in a way that is meaningful and met with patience and connection.
Below are just a few examples of concerns that may be addressed in therapy with children:

  • Sibling conflict
  • Aggression
  • Tantrums and anger outbursts
  • Behavioral problems
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • School difficulties
  • Grief and loss
  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Parent and child conflict
  • Foster care
  • Healthy boundaries
  • Peer relationships
  • Self-esteem issues
  • Mood issues

Adolescent and Teen Therapy

The transition from childhood to adolescence can be a challenging time physically, emotionally, and socially for many teens. While it is normal for teens to experience mood changes and varying emotional states, significant changes in the intensity and duration of emotional issues may interfere with your teen’s functioning across school, community, and home settings. Therapy can provide a supportive environment where your teen can freely express their experiences and emotions, build self-esteem and cope with current life stressors in ways that emphasize your teen’s interests, preferred way of communication, and personal strengths.

Below are just a few examples of issues that can be addressed in adolescent/teen therapy:

  • Academic concerns
  • Loss of important relationship
  • Peer difficulties
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Self-harm
  • Sibling conflict
  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Life stressors
  • Family relationships
  • Sexuality
  • Technology and cellphone use

Family Therapy

Is your family struggling to communicate in a positive way? Does it feel like you and your child are having the same arguments over and over without resolution? Are you experiencing stress related to parenting concerns? Do you desire a closer connection with your child or teen but are unsure about where to start? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, you may benefit from family therapy services.
Topics that can be addressed in family therapy include:

  • Sibling relationships
  • Setting limits and developing natural, age-appropriate consequences
  • Relationship-building
  • Identifying and meeting unmet needs
  • Home structure and routine
  • Healthy boundaries
  • Bedtime routine
  • Parent and child responsibilities and expectations
  • Positive and healthy communication
  • Reducing family conflict
  • Building empathy and understanding
