Finding the right child therapist is important! By developing a warm and friendly relationship with the child, my aim is to uncover the unconscious conflicts at the basis of the child's presenting issues. I help the child to become self-aware and resolve unconscious conflicts through imaginative play. Child therapy can have a tremendous impact for kids who are struggling at home or school.
Typical reasons for kids to see a marriage and family therapist include:
Behavioral problems (acting out, excessive anger, hitting, biting or kicking)
Emotional outbursts (mood swings, difficulty calming down, extreme emotions)
Learning or attention problems (hyperactivity, difficulty completing tasks)
Physical complaints (headaches, intestinal complaints) despite a normal physical exam
Life transition (death of loved one, divorce)
Social isolation or withdrawal
What does child therapy
Child therapy services include reading books, creating art, and playing educational games as a means to enhance a child's awareness of his or her emotional experiences and to help parents appropriately address the needs of their children.
