Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Santa Rosa Beach, FL
Teaching children and teens to be more mindful in their actions can help them feel more in control of themselves and decrease depression and anxiety. Learning to put some space between thoughts allows for a more peaceful and focused mind.
Play Therapy is a research-based, developmentally appropriate way for children to work through feelings and problems they are experiencing. Because children may not have the verbal language to express themselves and process their experiences, play therapy provides an opportunity for them to communicate without words.
In a lot of situations, parent coaching can be an effective addition to the treatment your child is receiving. Changing the language you use or discipline techniques can often reduce problem behaviors more effectively.
Being a teen in today's world is tough, and any added support can be helpful. To support adolescents, traditional talk therapy is combined with creative interventions. I listen in a non-judgmental way to help teens feel more comfortable sharing and learning to solve their own problems as they transition into adulthood.
Developing a trusting relationship with you and your child is key to a successful therapeutic experience. I will spend time getting to know you and your child to create this bond. For children, a safe place is created through play therapy. Whether counseling is focused on one person or the family as a whole, I make sure to provide the support you need.
Parent Coaching is helpful for parents who need some non-judgmental support to feel more confident as a parent. You might want help navigating a specific parenting challenge or a tricky conversation. Or you might be so overwhelmed that you need weekly support. We will focus on your values and goals to solve any parenting problem you encounter. Even one session can reduce stress and help you make some changes to ease the job of parenting.
