Child Issues

Today’s children face a variety of unique issues. As children grow, they go through many mood and behavior changes. Although these changes can be difficult – both for the children and for the caregivers – they are usually normal, predictable and no cause for concern. However, when a child is having trouble at home, school or with friends, or is struggling to process a routine or traumatic event (for example the birth of a sibling, death of a loved one, bullying, or abuse), the help a professional may be needed. A mental health professional who specializes in child issues can be a great asset in helping a child (or their caregivers) navigate this distinctive time in their lives.

Children’s therapy looks different from adults or adolescents because typically, children are better able to express themselves through their play and art than just through words. Using these methods, I will help your child express and understand their feelings and problems.
