Children and adolescents are often faced with numerous struggles as they learn, grow and become their own individual selves. Bullying, parent's divorce, grief or loss, peer struggles are just some of the various life events and stressors that cause our children and adolescents to experience emotional and psychosocial difficulties. Play therapy promotes the power of play and enables children to honor their own developmental level. After a safe and trusting relationship is created between the therapist and client, client's are able to freely express themselves and growth, healing and empowerment can begin. In play therapy, children and adolescents will learn to better understand their emotions and learn helpful tools for how to effectively and safely express their thoughts and feelings.
Early Childhood research shows that young children under the age of 6 years are best supported in a clinical setting when their parent (or trusted caregiver) is also present. The caregiving relationship, rather than just the individual child, is the focus of treatment. A young child's psychology develops within the context of their attachment relationships and thus, that relationship is at the center of clinical intervention. I work with many young children who have experienced a rupture in their attachment relationships and engaging in a relationship focused intervention is crucial for their psychological growth and healing.
The experiences in our lives shape us and define our relationships with ourselves and others. In individual psychotherapy, you are given a safe space to both honor and explore the behavioral, emotional and social stressors that may arise throughout your life. Individual counseling can help identify and heal the stressors in our lives, such as: anxiety and depression, work/life balance, trauma, familial struggles, or grief and loss. Being honest with ourselves and giving ourselves the space and time to embrace our struggles, that is when personal growth, healing and empowerment can begin.
