Counseling for Children

I work with children who struggle with anxiety, depression, fear, difficulty paying attention, high-functioning autism, anger and defiance.

When children discover that talking about their struggle helps to make it "go away," they become excited and enjoy the process.  This form of desensitization works.  

Depression, defiance and anger often hide a deeper issue that parents need to understand and then resolve,  Family therapy is very helpful in this stiuation.

I have created an approach to deal with teasing that is 95% effective for ages 3-25.  Teasing can lead to school problems, stomach aches, depression, sadness and suidical thoughts if not addressed.  My approach stops the teasing and change sthe focus of the "game" of teasing so that the child is no longer the target.

I have over 20 years of experience dealing with AD/HD in schools.  AD/HD, when untreated, can lead to depression, anxiety, drugs and suicidal thoughts.  Diagnosing AD/HD is not difficult and is a family discussion with a competent therapist.  Follow up with a child psychiatrist or pediatrician is the beginning of treatment along with an understanding that AD/HD is not a mental illness and can be effectively treated with surprisingly good results.

Call me to discuss your child's situation.
