“There is no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.”
– Nelson Mandela
Families, Pre-teens, and Teens
Working with distressed teens, pre-teens and their exhausted parents is a key focus of my practice. I address issues such as: oppositional behavior, social problems, family conflict, aggressive acting-out, school refusal, phobias, autism spectrum disorders, bullying, divorce, and many other difficulties.
Most kids find my office to be a safe and fun place. My connection with kids is the foundation for successful treatment; as such, I go to great lengths to build that connection– drawing, board games, music, jokes, sand play, foosball, role-play, stories, Nerf basketball, sculpting, and more.
My treatment for kids and teens is not only relational, but highly pragmatic. including: handouts, role-play, goal-directed exercises, projective games, and skills building. I also offer parents support through education, skills building, and parenting plans.
Feel free to call or send me an email. I invite any questions you may have about how I work with families, kids, and teens.
