Child Play Therapy in Vancouver, WA

In counseling of children, I use play therapy, sand tray therapy, therapeutic clay and other positive behavioral strategies, aimed at helping children heal from trauma, increase confidence, feel greater self-worth and reconnect with their inner strengths.

Oftentimes, children do not know how to express their feelings and do not disclose incidents of bullying or other

emotional hurt from stressful events until they come to counseling.

Children, who experienced trauma, are often unable to express their emotional pain in words.

Play therapy allows children make sense of their experiences and start healing via empowerment and regaining unconditional self-love and acceptance.

With more than 15 years of experience working with children who experienced trauma,

I am proud to say that I was able to help children heal and start enjoying childhood again.

If your child is facing emotional or behavioral challenges, I am here to help. 

Together we can help your child heal from trauma, regain confidence and learn positive coping skills.

Teen Counseling in Vancouver, WA

Do you find it difficult to talk to your teen?

Are you concerned that your teenager makes risky choices?

Do you try to reach out to help your teen, but your teen refuses to listen, shuts down or talks back?

It can be stressful, painful and frustrating to see your teenager struggling, but refusing to listen or accept help.

As a parent you have the best interests of your child; however, at times you may feel at loss how to help your teen.

Peer pressure, academic demands, drug and alcohol exposure are some of the struggles that teenagers may face nowadays.

Being a teenager isn’t easy, and often, teens need an outlet for expressing themselves and work through their issues.

That is when your teenager may greatly benefit from professional teen counseling.

In counseling of teens I use positive behavioral strategies, aimed at helping teens heal from trauma, develop safe coping skills,

effective communication skills, make positive choices, feel greater self-worth and reconnect with their inner strengths.

Insurance

I work with clients who have Regence, Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Premera Blue Cross of Washington and other insurance carriers as an OUT-OF-NETWORK provider.

Your health insurance policy will often offer full or partial coverage for OUT-OF-NETWORK mental health treatment for your child and your family. If you decide to use your insurance your child will be required to have a mental health diagnosis.

You are responsible for the payment of the full fee for a child counseling session at the time of the service. Upon request, I will provide you with a receipt of payment for you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.

Please call your insurance company to find out your OUT-OF-NETWORK coverage. Please ask how much out-of-network mental health coverage is and if you have a deductible that you need to meet before your insurance covers your sessions.
