Kristin Mueller, MA, LMHC, CDPT, Counselor in Seattle
Children and adolescents deal with their own unique stresses and challenges at home, in school, and in their peer groups. They are always working to find a balance between their own individuals needs and desires and the needs of their parents, family members, teachers, and peers. As children and young adults learn to navigate stressful times successfully they can benefit from the support and security offered through a relationship with a safe and caring counselor.
In therapy I use a variety of different therapy techniques, especially play therapy. Play therapy is effective with all ages - children, adolescents, and adults and it can be modified for each individual and their own unique needs. I use play as a foundation for all of the work that I do with children and families.
When working with children, I invite parents to participate in the therapeutic process. Children make greater therapeutic gains when strategies developed in the therapy sessions are practiced at home -- the family system is an excellent playground to practice new skills and behaviors that are being learned with the therapist.
