It is difficult for children and adolescents to find an environment in which they can openly discuss the struggles that they are enduring. I work to facilitate an environment in which individuals can feel safe, supported, and understood, tailoring the dynamics within each session to meet each individuals unique needs. I then utilize an integrative approach - founded in Evidence Based Therapies - to specifically attend to each individual's needs so that they can most successfully overcome the obstacles that they are facing in their lives.

Understanding what is motivating a child ’s behavior often takes a trained eye. The therapeutic relationship will help foster an understanding, work towards preventing and managing psychological based distress for both parents and children . Children often do not have the words to let parents know why they are acting the way they do. Parents wonder is this just a phase my child is going through? As a therapist my role is to gain an understanding of what makes your child do what he or she is doing. Working together with parents is a critical part of the therapeutic process to foster your child 's success.

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.
