I work with individuals and families from an attachment perspective. I have worked extensively with children ages three and up in individual and family therapy, utilizing play, art and talk therapies to help individuals handle challenging situations at home and/or school, or within their own internal world. I can help children build resilience, self-reliance, and their self-regulatory skills. I work with parents, helping them to better meet their children's needs while fostering a better relationship. I work with adults on the myriad of life transitions they are working through, helping them better cope with their everyday stresses.

Parenting is hard. Like, really REALLY hard. I know we've all been there....feeling isolated, alone, and like we are failing ourselves and our children. But if you are here now, reading this, you are actively looking for new ways to parent and interact with your children. And that's huge! We know through decades of research that caregiver/parent self-reflection is the single greatest catalyst for positive change, in addition to feeling connected to and supported by others. That is where Circle of Security Parenting comes in! Learning how to identify and meet the emotional needs of our children, while staying balanced ourselves.

I enjoy working with individual children and adults who may be experiencing some sort of challenge in their life. These challenges may be related to anxiety, depression, behavioral problems, relationship difficulties, self-identity as well as many other life difficulties. Whatever your life challenge may be, I work to create a warm, open and safe environment to help you work through it. Counseling is a collaborative process that is built on the foundation of the client-counselor relationship, which is something that I work hard to build from the first session.

Maybe you are trying to find ways to help your child with anxiety.
Teletherapy for anxiety, panic, OCD, and selective mutism - You feel like you can’t get out of your head. You try to distract yourself, but the “what if” worries won’t stop. You ask your friends and family if the worries are “logical”, and then realize you are asking the same question over and over again. Maybe you’re experiencing feelings of panic or other anxiety that stops you from being able to do the things you want to. You want to be more social, but you go blank when you are in a new situation. You can't stop putting pressure on yourself to be "productive" which often leads to more worries.

Creating a safe space for children and witnessing the profound healing that any child can experience through the medium of therapeutic play is my passion, and I warmly encourage you to contact me to learn more or schedule an appointment.
Hello, my name is Benjamin Menard. I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker beginning my private practice in Spokane. My specialty is non-directive play therapy for children ages 4 – 12. I use this client-centered approach with the theory that children use their play to communicate more effectively than language and typical talk therapy. I see play therapy as a way to meet children where they are and learn from them about their world.

With children, I use play and art therapy, which can help children feel understood and empowered, gain greater self-awareness and work toward healthy development, social skills and individuation.
Life can be very stressful at times. Our moods, anxiety levels, thinking and behaviors can depend on how well we are able to manage these stressors over time. Sometimes, the coping skills we have learned simply are not enough and we feel overwhelmed and out of control. There is a solution to almost every problem. My goal in therapy is to provide a safe environment so that you can learn to better manage your thinking, feeling and behavior and regain control and power in your life.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Spokane, WA 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 Spokane build great relationships with the child and the parent.

Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
