Do you have a child who struggles with high anxiety, sadness, or anger; has experienced trauma; or is being impacted by a major life change? Play therapy can help. During play therapy sessions, my focus is to help children better understand themselves and their emotions, appropriately express their emotions, increase responsibility for choices, and develop a healthy sense of self. I believe that parents are an invaluable part of the therapy process. Child -Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT) is one way that I equip parents with the necessary tools for strengthening relationships with their children , families, and themselves.

As a parent and a licensed psychologist specializing in the assessment and treatment of children and adolescents with learning, behavioral, social, and emotional challenges, I understand how difficult it is to know where to turn when you observe your child struggling. My goal is to provide a comprehensive psychological or neuropsychological evaluation that provides a specific plan for intervention and recommendations that are research-based and realistic to accomplish. I believe that parents must understand not only their child 's challenges but know their child 's strengths and how to effectively lean on those strengths to assist with challenges.

I work collaboratively with my clients to bring awareness to their thought and behavioral patterns so that they can identify and obtain the resources they need to feel more satisfied in their lives. I strive to empower my clients to see the resilience and strength within themselves.

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.
