Therapy for Kids and Teenagers
Help for Your Life
Children's Natural Language
Play Therapy is the treatment of choice for children as young as 2 years old up to age 11-12. Play is children's natural language. Through play and art, children express emotional traumas they do not possess the verbal language to discuss.
Embrace Life’s Challenges Together
This service is a favorite among many of my clients, as Family cohesion is often times one of the keys to a happier, healthier life. Family systems therapy is a form of psychotherapy that supports people in resolving conflicts with their family or problems that exist within a family unit. All members of the family contribute to the dynamic of whether the family is functioning in a healthy or dysfunctional way.
Coping with ADHD
Get the Most out of Life
Do you feel like your child is constantly moving and unable to focus? While there is no cure for ADHD, there are a few treatment options to minimize its effects. Medication is not the only way to help your child focus. I can coach your child to use effective strategies to overcome their ADHD symptoms.
Guidance & Inspiration
Addiction most often begins in the teenage years. While it is true that some teenagers are pressured into trying drugs and alcohol, it is also common for teenagers to abuse drugs to escape feelings of anxiety or depression. Addiction counseling can help your teen get to the route cause of the addiction.
Peer Relationship Counseling
A Real Friend is One Who Walks in When the Rest of the World Walks Out
It's important for children to learn how to get along with others. Being able to communicate well, ask for help, and depend on others is the hallmark of healthy development.
Learn to Recognize Anger Warning Signs
Anger often is a cover for a more uncomfortable emotion such as fear or sadness. Anger Management will teach your child to recognize the physical, mental and behavioral warning signs of anger and how to control anger impulses. Assertive communication is one of the most important aspects of learning anger management.
