When to seek help for your Child
Do they seem nervous or on edge often?
Are they crying and refusing to go to school?
Are they complaining of headaches or stomachaches and doctors have ruled out any medical issues?
Are they isolating themselves or not engaging with family and peers as much as they used to?
I get it, it can feel really uncomfortable to seek help for your child and sometimes leave you asking, "What am I doing wrong?" But the truth is, sometimes children just need an additional support and help in learning to cope through difficult feelings.
I am trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral therapy where I use a mixture of exercises, therapeutic games, and play to help each child work through their traumatic experience. I am also trained in school presence and have extensive experience working with children and adolescents who are struggling to make it to school due to anxiety and depression.
Some of the Supplies I use with Children
Kinetic Sand: Which is great for helping children feel calm when discussing difficult events. It is also great for creative thinking, sensory processing, pretend play, and increased attention.
Therapeutic Games: I have games for children of all ages focused on grief, divorce, conflict resolution, anger, behavior, self-esteem, and bullying as well as art supplies to help children express what they are feeling in a non threatening way.
Relationships are hard, especially with the regular day to day responsibilities of work, children, finances, and everything else in between. With added stress or a traumatic experience, it can make things more challenging for couples. It can start to negatively impact communication, intimacy, and quality time together.
I can help you work through those challenges and find healthy communication skills to help build your relationship to where you want it to be.
The best thing about families is that everyone is unique in their own way! This is a great thing but with all the different personalities, it can also cause conflict. When dealing with trauma or loss in a family, it can cause barriers in communication and drastically change the family dynamic.
I can help you build healthy relationships with your loved ones and teach communication skills that will help you navigate through those tough times.
