I believe that children's symptoms, which are different than adults, are seen in their troublesome behaviors and inability to control emotions. Children are limited in language, resources and the ability to cope, which requires a unique treatment approach. Since a child?s natural language is play, rather than talk, I use a holistic child centered approach concentrates on both non-verbal and verbal that incorporates play, creative art, talk, and EMDR therapy to assist in a successful healing process.
