Working with children in therapy requires an optimal blend of curiosity, authenticity, and attunement. Adults rely on talk as the preferred medium of expression, but children often communicate best through play or movement.
Following a child’s cues, I utilize a mix of play, art, creation, movement, and talk to uncover the true feeling states that underlie a child’s behavior. I also work closely with the parents to observe relational dynamics and coach in real time on alternative ways of communicating or problem solving. Together, we will then create a plan which will support your child and the entire family to shift toward a more harmonious place.
