In my 25 years of clinical experience, I’ve treated children who have struggled with obsessive compulsive disorder, anger, and anxiety as well as other emotional concerns that have affected them in their development. In this time, I have come to believe in the importance of family involvement in a child’s therapy. Having the support and commitment of parents and family members is valuable, as a child’s problems arise within a family environment. For young children, I’ve employed methods of play therapy that help me understand what’s troubling them in their lives, while helping them communicate and make sense of their experiences.
