Connecting with children is a delicate art. A good therapist helps them feel safe, accepted, and understood. I create an environment where children can be their authentic selves. Children tend to have very shallow blockages. Given the opportunity to just "be", the issues that need to be targeted surface easily. From this point I work with a variety of therapeutic approaches to help alleviate negative patterns, behaviors, and emotions. I work specifically with play and expressive art therapy with younger children, which functions as a method of communication using a language other than words to reveal their internal reality.
