Is your child having behavioral difficulties? Children often communicate their emotions, both positive and negative, with behaviors. Unwanted behaviors often occur when children have already used all their coping skills and no longer know how to handle conflict. Kari offers a specialized approach to reshaping behaviors using a combination of expressive arts and behavior modification interventions. She addresses each child’s unique challenges with an individualized perspective that includes the entire family system. Kari is able to assess and interpret the expression of the child and use it to foster change.
