My biggest therapeutic success is to incorporate things in my therapy session such as playing games, playing sports, dancing, art, team building, executive functioning, self-esteem checks, charades, role-plays, and music therapy that are so enjoyable to the children that it makes them feel more open and honest to share about the things they want to work on, what they need to work on, but gets them excited to come back each week and learn the skills that they want and need, but have fun while doing it.
My therapeutic specialty includes working with children ages 3 to 12, children with autism, ADHD, anxiety, depression, social pressures, athletics, peer pressure, self-esteem, family relationships, parent-child sessions, family conflicts, divorce parents, sibling relationships, coping skills, behavior regulation and school improvement.
How I build empathy and rapport with my younger clients is by learning what they like, things that interest them, sports they are involved in, and with all of these components create sessions that are geared towards things that they love while still working on therapeutic goals

Since I work with the younger children my primary therapy is play therapy but I always implement with the play therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, strength based, attachment based, mindfulness, or art therapy as well. By using play therapy, the child will be interested in the session by playing or doing a fun activity, but still incorporating the more intense therapeutic strategies
