Counseling Services Will Help Your Child & Your Family:

  • ​The specialized play therapy room makes younger children feel right at home. Through play, your child can communicate what is bothering them and start feeling (and behaving better). Ask me about how play therapy works!
  • Art, sandtray, and kinesthetic storytelling interventions help older children and teenagers who don't want to be in therapy start to communicate their feelings. We can talk about if this is a good fit for your child.
  • For children with a history of trauma, children benefit from specialized services like TF-CBT or EMDR. We can discuss if this would benefit your child.
  • Every session includes a parent consultation that gives you specific and concrete steps to use at home to help resolve issues. Your input is critical to our success. 
  • Additional services include sessions for siblings that fight constantly (they CAN get along!) and family sessions to strengthen your relationship with your child. Let me know how you want to be included in our sessions!
