My experience has been primarily focused on children and adolescents in various environments such as in-home therapy which allowed me to help re-integrate children and adolescents back into their communities and a group home setting where I provided treatment for adolescents with various behavioral and developmental disorders.
Being the person that all of my friends came to for help with their lives, I naturally gravitated towards the mental health field. Helping people and watching them evolve has been an incredibly rewarding experience. Providing a non-judgmental, safe space for others to explore their wants and needs is paramount to the therapy that I provide.

In addition to talk therapy, I sometimes use art therapy to help make healing easier for children and others who find it difficult to talk about conflicts they are facing.
As a licensed professional counselor and a board certified, registered art therapist, I have found that participants in the art therapy process are able to address important issues such as adjustment to divorce, overcoming trauma, enhancing self esteem, managing depression, coping with loss, and increasing self-awareness. Artistic ability is not necessary for this process to take place. Any form of expression using the art materials will provide the opportunity for the participant to find resolution to conflicts. As an art therapist, I can assist the participant to move from non-verbal expression through art making to verbal communication.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Freehold, NJ provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Freehold build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
