Psychotherapist

Creative Arts​ Therapist

Mark Beauregard​, MA, RDT-BCT, LCAT

I have helped children and families with:


  • Anger and depression
  • Acting out and opposition at home and school
  • ADHD
  • Anxiety
  • Coping with bullying issues
  • Coping with foster care placement
  • Divorce transitions and adjustment
  • Gender nonconformity and gender creative expression 
  • Low self-esteem
  • Physical and sexual abuse
  • Poor impulse control
  • Parent and child relational tensions and power struggles
  • ​Social skill development 

Children:


Play is how children develop life skills for their future, and so I help them use play, puppetry, drama and creative arts to explore personal issues in a way that is more effective than simply talking. I help kids develop coping skills for life conflicts in a safe and age-appropriate form. In sessions I cater interventions to individual needs and outcomes. 


​In working with children, I always incorporate parents and caregivers in order to best support the child and family in achieving the best results. 

I also work collaboratively with other providers such as psychiatrist, psychologists, schools and teachers, and other important individuals in children's lives to ensure continuity of care. 


Family Work:

There are often times when working with the whole family may be the most appropriate therapy approach. Using humor, play, active and engaging techniques, I can assist the family to open up lines of communication, become more comfortable and work toward common goals.
