Columbus Child Counselor
In my office we talk, we play, we create art and we celebrate strengths while shoring up weaknesses. When I am working with a child, I am working with the whole family. I know that the only thing harder than being a kid is raising one and I focus on therapeutic interventions that will help both parent and child create new, healthier dynamics within their relationship.
I work with kids and families who are struggling with anger, anxiety, ADHD, adoption issues, abuse histories, abandonment, death, divorce, blended families, self esteem, body image, difficulty adjusting to moving, starting school or the birth of a sibling.
I have special expertise in working with homeschooling (and unschooling) families.
At the first appointment, I like to speak with parents alone to hear more about what’s going, what you’ve tried, what’s working and what isn’t working.
I have a fully stocked play therapy room and work with preschoolers on up through teens. Some children like to meet me before we have an official session and I am happy to accommodate this. I can schedule a quick ten or fifteen minute hello with your child before we begin our work together. You can also show them pictures of the office (see below) and ask them what they think they’d like to do when they come visit.
