Child & Adolescent Therapy
Children & teens have their own language. Whether it's expressed with play therapy, music, athletics &/or social media, we must be on the same page as them. I've had sessions playing catch with a 13 year old, coloring with a 9 year old girl, sitting at my keyboard while chatting with a 16 year old, or listening to hip-hop. If these kids are experiencing adversity, abuse, bullying, or neglect they need and deserve a safe place to express themselves. They expect me to understand their world. Maybe having 9 grandchildren ranging from 5 to 18 has prepared me to listen with kindness, compassion and curiosity.
