Child Therapy

I OFFER PLAY-BASED THERAPY IN MY BOISE, IDAHO OFFICE LOCATION ONLY.  TELETHERAPY CLIENTS MUST BE AGE 12+.

I work with children as young as age 3, so long as they are verbal enough to participate in therapy.  I utilize several varieties of child-centered play therapy to engage the child in participating in the therapeutic process.  Play therapy uses a variety of play and creative arts techniques to alleviate chronic, mild and moderate psychological and emotional conditions in children that are causing behavioral problems and/or are preventing children from realizing their potential. 

 

I have had good success with a range of childhood behavior and mood disorders, including sensory issues, ADD/ADHD and mild Autism Spectrum Disorders.  I also have a great deal of knowledge in dealing with children who have experienced trauma, as I worked for many years with children in the foster care system who were often faced with traumatic events.  I also offer behavior management therapy for both parents and children together to help decrease problematic behavior and increase parenting skills.  

 

I also work with older children and teens with a variety of mood and behavioral disorders.  I understand that these years in their life can be difficult with many transitions and changes.  I provide a safe and comfortable environment in which they can be free to share their struggles and learn coping techniques.

 

Children under the age of 12, must have a parent or guardian present on-site at all times.
