When beginning my work with children, I meet with parents first to get a thorough history as well as an opportunity to speak freely about parental concerns. The next session is an assessment with the child on their own to establish a therapeutic relationship and hear from them. Once we establish mutually agreed upon goals, I work with children through play, art, games, CBT skills/homework, and traditional talk therapy. I always include parallel work with parents to support and improve communication and understanding.
