As a licensed psychotherapist, my specialties in child psychotherapy include:
I focus on the various methods in order to tackles the issues pertaining to your child:
This type of therapy uses dialogue and evaluation to help the client come to personal realizations about areas of their behavior or emotions that need to be challenged or changed.
This type of therapy is a conjoint child and parent psychotherapy approach for children and adolescents who are experiencing significant emotional and behavioral difficulties related to traumatic life events.
This type of therapy focuses on the thought process of an individual. Activities used will help the client identify and change problematic behavior through assignments, homework and behavior modification.
All these forms of therapy enter into the child’s expression of emotions and behaviors through play. Play/Art/Sand Tray Therapy uses play tools as the medium to help the child identify emotions, problem solve and develop new behaviors.
