They say that being a parent is the hardest job in the world. It's also definitely not easy being a kid in a fast-paced and demanding modern world. Children from about age 5 and up can benefit from talk therapy with an accepting, caring person from outside of their home, school, and social environments. I often incorporate play with younger children, to help them be comfortable in the therapeutic environment and be able to engage. I'm passionate about working with adolescents and teens, as these years can be challenging under even the best of circumstances. I always work with families to develop healthy parent/child communication.
