Services for Parents and Children

Individual Play Therapy for children (age 6-12)

  • Through a developmentally appropriate, play-based approach, children learn to express and work through a variety of issues that they may be facing, such as: anxiety, depression, anger, social skills, low self-confidence, sibling rivalry, adjusting to change, bullying, and many others.
  • Play therapy offers children a way to express their inner world. Through play, children can safely and comfortably express and process the thoughts, feelings, fears, and hopes that they normally would have difficulty verbalizing.
  • Some of the methods of play I utilize in my approach include sandtray therapy,  drawing, painting, crafts, and therapeutic games.
