When your children are experiencing problems, it impacts the whole family and life can feel overwhelming. I have a passion for helping children and parents work through their problems and pain to come to a happier and healthier place! Help for your family is available right here in Van Alstyne, Texas!
Children express themselves through play, their natural form of communication. In play therapy, I create a safe and accepting environment for children to process and express their feelings. Your child will learn mastery skills to increase confidence and self-esteem and develop coping skills to reduce anxiety and help regulate emotions. Through play therapy, your child will gain the tools they need to move forward with their healing and find creative ways to resolve their problems.
Teens and tweens are faced with stress from peer and family relationship issues, social media concerns, academic problems, anxiety, depression, self-harm, and the list goes on. I create a safe space for them to process feelings, work through problems, and learn coping skills to achieve their goals and manage life. Whether it's through talk therapy, activities, games, or expressive arts, I will adapt my therapy with them to fit how they process and express themselves best.
It can feel overwhelming as a parent when faced with your child's struggles and feeling unsure about what to do and how to communicate with them. I will meet with you regularly to answer questions, update you on progress in therapy, and work on learning how to respond to your child's feelings and behaviors in the most effective and healthy ways. There are many resources for parenting that I will share with you throughout the process of your child's therapy.
