You’ve noticed your toddler isn’t talking yet. Maybe she only talks repetitively. Or he seems delayed compared to the other kids at the park. The meltdowns are the worst you’ve ever seen. You’re thinking, “Is my child developing as she should? Is this a developmental delay? Is he autistic?” Is your doctor telling you to “wait and see?” Raising your child doesn't have to be this hard.

I have knowledge and use Motivational Interviewing, REBT, Existential, and play-like therapy for children .
Helping people improve the quality of their life is my goal. Therapy doesn't need to take forever. People have busy lives and when they decide to try counseling, it's usually with the hope that they can feel less anxious, enjoy a better mood, or perhaps not be as angry. For most issues there is a solution. The best outcomes occur when solutions can be found without having to focus on the problem alone. Socrates said, "A life unexamined is not worth living" I think he was being a little harsh. I think an examined life can be better in so many ways.

Are you tired of those intrusive thoughts? Do you continue tell yourself “just don’t think about it” and you still do? Are you having a difficult time doing simple task because traumatic thoughts keep coming back?” Do you continue to have nightmares? your family and friends continue to say, “that was in the past” or “you should just move on” If it were only that simple. Sometimes it gets so bad, where you feel completely disconnected from the world and yourself, like an out of body experience. Many times you may wonder, “Am I the only person who is going through this?”

Child Therapists

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
