Because children may not have the words to express how they think and feel, Kristina works with children in a special way. Through the therapeutic use of play, Kristina is able to help children explore and resolve issues while encouraging healthy behaviors. Kristina uses toys, games and books to aid in building rapport with children and assisting with the expression of feelings in therapy.

Kristina is currently working towards becoming a Registered Play Therapist in Georgia. A Registered Play Therapist is a state licensed clinical mental health practitioner that has undergone specialized training and experience in play therapy. For more information, please visit this link.

After consistent treatment using play, parents typically report that their child is more social and outgoing, has increased confidence, seems to be in a better mood, and is better able to manage difficult emotions. Kristina helps children in the following areas:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety/Fears
  • Divorce of parents
  • Stress
  • Social Issues
  • Family conflict
  • Anger/Temper tantrums
  • Behavior issues
  • Sexual acting out
  • Biting
  • School problems
