Hi, I am Mona R. Smith and am a therapist for children/adolescents. As parents, we always want our children to be healthy and happy. My passion is to work with children/adolescents to help with behavioral, emotional and relational challenges. I am passionate about working with them to help them to thrive in life, put on a genuine smile and look forward to their future. I love working with children/adolescents to help them to be able to work through their issues that deter them from living an abundant life. I want to help and support your child/adolescent to help them conquer what ever has hindered them in their life so they may live happily and joyfully!
Having raised my own children, I understand the stresses of both being a child and raising children. We all need support from time to time and I am able to to be that support system for you and your child. I would work with your child so they may live a more genuine, purposeful and fulfilling life. We can work on a variety of areas such as survivors of child abuse, trauma, attention deficits, anxiety, depression, and social skills problems. Individual therapy will offer your child/adolescent an opportunity to discuss problems one-on-one with a trained specialist. The therapeutic bond is formed through Play Therapy (sand play, arts/crafts projects, role playing and games); tapping into your child/adolescent’s natural way of communicating and expressing feelings.
