My Approach to Helping

Knowing your child is suffering is never easy. There are many reasons for which children of all ages may be struggling. Getting them the guidance and support they need is crucial to their development and success, as well as their overall happiness and quality of life. I work with children, adolescents, and young adults to help ease the struggles in which they may be facing. By creating a supportive, encouraging, and caring relationship, I work to help each individual improve all areas of oneself in order to live a more balanced, healthy, and rewarding life. Each session is collaboratively tailored to fully meet the personality and needs of the individual so that his or her full potential can be met.

More Info About My Practice

As a Registered Play Therapist, my main approach to working with Children and Adolescents in a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Play Therapy. Play Therapy is an approach in which therapists strategically help children communicate and express troubles, and develop appropriate emotional and social skills, as well as improve cognitive development. Play allows children to cope with challenging emotions and find solutions to problems in a healthy way, by allowing children to alter their ways of thinking, feeling, and resolving their problems and concerns.

For teens and young adults, my approach is primarily Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. CBT focuses on correcting flawed thinking patterns in order to improve one's behaviors and overall outlook on life. Additional approaches often used include Client-Centered Therapy and Reality Therapy.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

There is no set time-frame for therapy. Each client's treatment is tailored to fit his or her individual needs. This includes the frequency of visits and the overall lifespan of therapy. Often, clients will begin treatment meeting for one hour, once a week. After both the clinician and the client or legal guardian(s) feel as though the client is ready, sessions will occur on an every-other-week basis. If at any time the client or hisher guardian feels as though the client needs to return to meeting weekly, treatment will return to meeting weekly.
