No matter your age, life can be unpredictable and can take you down difficult emotional journeys. For children and teens expressing emotions verbally can be even harder due to their developmental level. Situations like divorce, moving, a death in the family, school problems, friend issues and etc. often lead to negative behavioral changes or withdrawing. This is often due to their inability to express themselves properly. My role as a therapist is to create a comfortable and safe place for my clients to process their emotions and explore their inner self in a way that will help promote healing. I provide individual, family and play therapy. I use techniques such as art and play to allow children/ teens to feel safe enough to open up and process their struggles. I also use relaxation, mindfulness and assertive communication techniques. These techniques have proven to help both age groups learn ways to manage their emotions and behaviors. I know that parenting is hard and challenging. Whatever your child or teen is struggling with I can be an additional resource to help them grow emotionally. I am also available as a resource to my client’s parents in learning ways to support their children.
